The Big Audition ITV1 Mike Aspinall The Crafty GentlemanWaaay back in the summer, I teased a new project I was getting involved in. I didn’t give anything away, but a few of you messaged me with your guesses! Well, I’m excited to finally reveal what it was… I’m appearing on a new ITV show next week!

The Big Audition on ITV1

The show is called The Big Audition. It’s a brand new series which goes behind the scenes of the casting world to follow people applying for real jobs (think: models, actors, presenters etc). You can read more about it here. Earlier this year, the production company reached out to me to ask if I’d like to apply for one of the roles featured on the show. It was a craft-related role that they thought I’d be a good fit for – so of course I said yes!

I can’t reveal all the details (you’ll have to watch the show!), but I can say the filming day was so much fun! I’ve had a few appearances behind the camera before and I always love the adrenaline of the shoot day. This was no different! I met loads of cool fellow creatives, from such a varied set of backgrounds. The production team were amazing too – such a fun bunch of people to spend the day working with.

When can you watch The Big Audition?

I’ll be appearing on episode three of the show, airing on October 19th at 21:00 GMT on ITV1. If you can’t make it, then it’ll also be available for a limited time on the ITV Player!

I can’t wait for you guys to see the show. Let me know in the comments below if you’ll be tuning in! 🙂 – Mike.
