Cardwell Ready or Not!

 

A WACKY game show being broadcast on BBC 1 this Saturday was filmed at Cardwell Garden Centre.
The Ready Or Not film crew descended on the garden centre, near Gourock, last year to film part of the show, which features a character called Surprisey Man, played by comedian Matthew Cosby.
The comic was disguised as a stone water feature in the middle of Cardwell and he pops up unexpectedly to surprise members of the public.
Surprisey Man then goes on to ask the shocked contestants some quick-fire questions to win a cash prize.
The show, which features Paddy McGuinness as narrator, is being screened at 6.20pm.
But Cardwell’s retail general manager has revealed it wasn’t just the contestants who were given a surprise. He explains:
“While there were surprises on camera, we were involved in giving one of the show’s crew a surprise behind the scenes.
“It was the set designer’s birthday and our Patio Restaurant staff made a birthday cake and everybody sang Happy Birthday when I presented it to him after filming was completed.”
Paul added: “The filming at Cardwell was hilarious. Some of our customers who just happened to be walking by when Surprisey Man jumped up with a water feature on his head got just as much of a shock as the intended target.
“We can’t wait to see the programme on Saturday night.”
