Good Morning Britain’s resident cash contest presenter Andi Peters has been banned by ITV bosses from calling the cash prize “life-changing” – the 51-year-old dubbed the ban “ridiculous”. “.
ITV insists that a prize of £100,000 or less is not life-changing, with the broadcast corporation concerned that winners could sue them if their lives are not changed as a result of the cash prize.
Andi recently appeared on What If? podcast and considered the ban a “ridiculous situation” and then went on to reveal that lawyers for ITV had said presenters “can’t say the word life-changing unless it’s £101,000 or more.” up”.
He added: “And I always argue ‘I’m really sorry, £3,000 changed her life, she doesn’t have to take the bus to work anymore, so for her, life’ changed”.
“And that’s all subjective. What’s any money?”
Touching on the £1million gift he was faced with, the self-confessed playboy said: “Six years ago we gave away £1m and they wouldn’t let me call a £1million life change changed because – this is exactly what the lawyer said – ‘if Richard Branson wins, it won’t change his life’.
“So we argued back and said ‘no, it will change his life, because in that minute he will be £1m richer. That’s life changing’.”
“Don’t let us tell. I’ve done it this way. I’ve come to the top.
“So now the rule is £101,000 and higher is that life is changing. That’s the new rule. But if it’s ninety-nine (thousand), I can’t say lives are changing. “
Andi then recalled the moment he told a viewer on Google My Business that she had won £3,000 and claimed it changed her life.
“We do one thing when I knock on your door and give you £3,000,” he explains, “So we did it, knocked on this woman’s door, gave her £3,000. and I say ‘no’, I give away £250,000. Here is the comparison.
“But you have to remember £3,000 is a lot of money and she sent me a tweet two weeks later saying ‘just so you know, my car has been on the road for a year and a half and I received the Bus to Work, now I can afford the repair money, now I can go back to driving to work’.
“Things like that melt my heart. The £3,000 for her was life-changing.”
