Tip Of The Day: A Chance For Your Child To Be A TV Star

06/04/2010 23:09 | Updated 22 May 2015

Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden has launched the search for a child to take part in a TV commercial, and your child could be that star.

The 'Big Bold Hug' will be touring the UK in April with a travelling audition booth asking children to describe what a hug feels like to them. The best (as judged by the panel) will win a chance to star in the next Bold 2 in 1 TV ad. Could be a nice chance to have a fun day out with the kids and you never know, future stardom may await your family. All entries will be considered, so your child doesn't need to have had any previous performing experience.

As a mum and judge on the UK's favourite talent show, Amanda will be picking the winners alongside the people from Bold. She says, "As a mum, nothing feels better than a hug from my daughter, Lexi. Nothing has the feelgood factor or expresses that powerful bond between parent and child quite like a hug. That's why I'm supporting this campaign from Bold 2in1, where we are touring the country to find out what children think about hugs and I will be using my judging skills to help pick the best of the bunch to star on TV."

The roadshows are already travelling the country, and will continue to do so over the next few weeks. Here's where you can catch the next ones:
