Dundee Channel cancels Makeover Show

Now if you had to pick a show which might cause The Dundee Channel some problems you might have well said The Only Way Is… The VU this years most famous and wildest output but incredibly its been a Makeover Reality Show which has become the first Channel show ever to be pulled before screening.

In September we ran the following competition on our Facebook page

Dundee Channel cancels Makeover Show

So how did this manage to go so wrong ?

On Monday of this week The Dundee Channel received a message from Freedom to say that after many consultations of prospective winners, they were now ready for filming that afternoon.  The six winners were presented to the cameras and the piece was recorded.

No one gave it a second thought until managers at The Dundee Channel began receiving emails at 11pm that night to say editors had spotted that two of the winners hadn’t even entered the Facebook competition as they claimed on camera. Four out of the six contestants had properly entered and won their prizes but Dundee Channel producer Scott Somerville pulled the show out of the schedule since 2 of the 6 contestants had lied on camera. At that point Freedom was asked for an explanation which The Dundee Channel felt did not explain the need for such deception given the number of applicants.

All of the genuine winners have now been contacted by The Dundee Channel to explain that even though they properly won their prizes the video recording cannot be used because of the false representation on camera.

A spokesperson for The Dundee Channel said, “The integrity of Dundee Channel competitions is first and foremost and we must have competitions executed fairly and squarely. We are very disappointed with Freedom with whom we have collaborated on a number of projects and future collaboration is unlikely.”

Freedom manage Dundee’s Face of Freedom 2014 competition, The Dundee Channel had recorded episodes 1 and 2 and as we reported on 8th November production had stalled over how this years modelling competition would progress http://dundeechannel.com/blog/face-of-freedom-dundee-2014-returns/

Show your support for the work of the Maggies Cancer Care Centre at Ninewells Dundee by purchasing a fund raising calendar for 2014. Freedom Hairdressing in association with the DCA Print Studio and a host of local artists have produced a calendar for 2014 – The Tenth Anniversary of The Maggies Cancer Care Centre opening in Dundee beside Ninewells Hospital. The competition to create the prints for the calendar was inspired by a recipe book made to raise funds for Maggies in previous years.

Maggie’s Dundee is located at Ninewells Hospital, overlooking the Tay Estuary.

Maggie’s provides emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends. All services are free and you don’t need an appointment or a referral – you can just come in for a cup of tea.

You can talk to one of the Cancer Support Specialists for more information about your individual circumstances, or you can join in any part of the programme, whether it’s practical advice on benefits or nutrition, a support group, a t’ai chi class or a relaxation course, or simply meeting people around the kitchen table who are going through the same things as you.

The building was designed by Frank Gehry and was opened in September 2003 by Sir Bob Geldoff.
