Will Chloe’s Copycats get the cream?

Trinity GB is used to walking away from competitions with an easy win — but a team from the local brigade is staying tight-lipped about how they got on on children’s TV quiz Copy Cats.

Viewers will have to wait until after Christmas to see how the Bangor team got on in the CBBC game show.

The team is captained by local girl Chloe Booth and includes her friends Chloe McKee and ‘token boy’Chris Kent along with Trinity GB Officers Rebecca Nixon, Zahra Prentice and Jessica Peters.

A number of teams from the McMaster Stage School in Bangor also made it through the audition stages.

Chloe (14) said she heard CBBC was looking for competitors from her drama teacher, Patricia Irvine and decided to give it a go.

She had to complete a telephone interview and then assemble the team for the second stage of auditions which were held at BBC studios in Belfast.

The final stage of the audition process was at BBC Scotland and the team enjoyed a great couple of days in Glasgow. “They looked after us really well although we had a chaperone who followed us everywhere,” she said.

Copycats is presented by CBBC stalwarts Sam and Mark. The duo became famous when they finished second and third runners up in 2003s Pop Idol.

The game is based on the idea of Chinese whispers were two teams compete against each other in a series of comical games. These involve drawing pictures, completing actions and playing musical instruments.

Viewers will have to wait until January to see the Trinity GB team in action and find out whether they brought the Copycats trophy back to Bangor.
