One downside of the expat lifestyle is leaving family and friends behind in your home country. No amount of sunshine or blue sky can ever truly make up for the homesick feeling we feel when thinking about our parents, partners or children that are living half a world away.
Now, though, ITV are offering a helping hand.
In a soon-to-be-broadcast Father’s Day special, much-loved show Surprise Surprise is offering to reunite fathers and children divided by geographical distance.
Perhaps you haven’t seen your Dad since Christmas and would like an opportunity to surprise him in the Surprise Surprise studio?
Maybe you’d like to secretly slip back into the UK to surprise your children?
If so, Holly Willoughby and the Surprise Surprise team can make it happen – and at no cost to you.
We’ve been contacted by ITV, who are offering to cover the costs of flights and accommodation to help fathers connect with their children this Father’s Day.
If you would like to be part of the show – and enjoy and a worldwide family reunion into the bargain – getting involved couldn’t be simpler. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Fathers Day” in the subject heading and a member of the team will be in touch. Filming starts on June 14th – so apply early to avoid disappointment.
