DETERMINED Jennifer Cunningham is hoping her forthcoming appearance on television will be another step towards her ultimate goal of becoming a presenter.

Jennifer, 54, features in the Davina McCall ITV show, This Time Next Year, on February 26.

“They filmed me during 2017 and 2018,” explained Jennifer, a beauty technician.

In the show, Davina meets people from all over the UK willing to share with the nation what they pledge to change about their life by ‘this time next year’.

“I wanted to find a nice boyfriend – or husband,” laughed Jennifer, who lives in Horwich.

She is keeping the result of her quest a closely guarded secret – viewers will have to wait until the show is screened to find out how she went on.

It will be the latest television appearance for Jennifer who has featured in Who’s Doing the Dishes? and Hello Campers.

“I love reality shows, I love the whole excitement of being in them,” said Jennifer, who has also appeared as an actress in Last Tango in Halifax and Coronation Street.

She was chosen from over 90,000 other applicants for Who’s Doing the Dishes? and is so in demand that she found herself having to turn down Channel 4’s First Dates to appear on This Time Next Year.

“Unfortunately, they clashed which meant I had to turn down the opportunity of filming First Dates in Marbella.”

Jennifer is hoping that her media work will one day lead to her achieving her ambition of becoming a television presenter.
