Surprise Surprise! 1

Update:
To answer questions we’ve had …

– There is NO age limit (fans can be of any age)
– When you contact ITV they will contact you back with ADDITIONAL information about your nomination, the procedure and if you have any questions about your nomination (or if they have any) they can contact you etc.
– The nominees (e.g. you, if you are nominating say your sister) need to explain WHY the person they are nominating deserves the surprise. Be it doing a lot of work in the community, helping others etc. This isn’t a ‘voting’ system. The decisions on who should be surprised lie with the production team at ITV. It doesn’t matter if someone gets 10000 nominations or just a single one. It’s not a popularity contest, decisions are made by the production team.
The show is still in PRE-PRODUCTION e.g. stuff has still not been finalised. Anything can change at any time.
Please note that your application will include the name, age, address and picture of the person you are nominating. So someone you barely know online cannot be nominated unless they are willing to supply you personal information, in that case its not really a ‘surprise’ is it?

If you have further questions you would like us to ask ITV please tweet or DM us at @TheSatsCoUk and we will ask on your behalf. No matter how silly (or deep) the question is, we will ask it!
