The popular Geordie duo's show incorporates 'Sofa Watch' which involves four sofas being hidden in random locations in the UK.

Viewers are urged to get to the location to stand a chance to be sat in the 'best seats in the house' for next week's live show.

One location was Scarborough's Spa Bridge with more than 100 residents flocking to the sofa in an attempt to win the prize.

The number six was called out by the Super Computer with a man having a one in four chance to feature on next week's programme, when he would have been sat with Queen of the Jungle Scarlett Moffatt.

The Super Computer then picked a location randomly between Scarborough, Cwmbran, Peterborough and Eastleigh. Unfortunately the Scarborough man was not selected with a woman in Cwmbran being the lucky winner.

All the people who turned out to Spa Bridge on Saturday night did earn themselves a 'I found the secret sofa' badge.
