Friends reunited: surprise for old school mates in property renovation challenge

31 October 2019

A reality TV contestant was reunited with an old school pal for the first time in a decade – just hours before they bought a £51k house together.

Sherri-Leigh Richards was stunned to be partnered with Annie Lamb for the new S4C show Ty am Ddim, which gives two contestants just six months to buy, renovate and sell a property at auction.

The producers of the show, which airs for the first time tonight, put the contestants in random pairs - but Sherri-Leigh was amazed to find herself on the same team as her old school mate.

It was the first they’d seen each other in about ten years since they left Ysgol Gyfun Rhydywaun, their comprehensive school in Penywaun near Aberdare.

Sherri-Leigh, 27, said: “When it came to the introduction meeting, all I remember is a shock of red hair and recognising Annie immediately. She was in the year above me and we’d been friends but lost touch over the years, so it was a big surprise when we were partnered together.

“It was great to catch up with her again and we both worked really well together on the show – with some great results.”

Sherri-Leigh and Annie, 28, will be the first contestants to appear on the Welsh language property programme. See how they get on in the first episode of Ty am Ddim on S4C tonight at 8pm.

The series will have eight S4C episodes – one a week - and will be on Channel 4 across the UK as The Great House Giveaway, next year.

As sponsors, Together, has been given exclusive access to the contestants, who will appear in behind-the-scenes videos, on its social media channels and in the press.
