A screen break for lucky Em; SHOWBIZ: Proud Brummie plays the fame game on new TV comedy show.

Byline: By Poppy Brady

CITY celebrity hopeful Emma Fitch could be a name to watch as she takes part in a new TV comedy stunt show. The former Birmingham schoolgirl beat hundreds of other auditioning hopefuls for a chance to star in Bamboozle, a new six-week show which starts on the TV channel E4 on Thursday.

It is based on three girls trying to compete for as much media attention as possible by talking their way on to TV programmes such as GMTV and Trisha. They come up with all kinds of wacky ideas to get a much-prized TV slot. The overall winner has been decided but will remain a closelyguarded secret until the series finishes in early January.

"I saw the audition and in London and just went for it," said 23year-old Emma, whose parents live in Croftdown Road, Harborne. "I'm very proud to be a Brummie so I think it's great that Birmingham is being represented on the show."

Emma, who went to St Mary's RC Primary School, in Harborne, then St Paul's School for Girls, used to be a member of the Birmingham Midland Operatic Society.

After completing a degree in drama and media arts, she is now based in London and has already appeared in the BBC 2 series The Sack Race.

n Bamboozle runs on E4 at 11pm, starting November 24
