A woman from Tameside is set to become a star of the small screen as she appears on E4’s newest dating show ‘Game of Clones’.

In one of the strangest pitches for a dating show yet, the producers lets contestants pick their perfect partner and then find 8 people who fit the profile, before letting them compete to win the affections of the man or woman.

Alexandra Hill

Alexandra Hill, 23, is one of the 8 women selected by George on this Monday’s (6 March) episode.

The women spend an entire week together in the house, and Alexandra says she had a blast: “I was dead nervous because you don’t know who you’re going to meet.

“It was amazing because we all got on well and it was weird because we were all literally the same person, it’s bizarre.

“We had our differences but the way we got on and the banter, we didn’t even think about the guy in the first few days, it would be good if it was just us together in a house for a week, it was really funny.”

Alexandra says she wasn’t sure at first, but soon came round to the idea: “They messaged me on Facebook asking if I’d do it. I thought about it, because I was single at the time, and then thought yeah I might as well. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.

She also said she was quiet taken with George, a half-Greek man with a love of football: “He was nice, good-looking, quite laid back and chilled.

“I think he was a bit overwhelmed with it all to be honest, especially with us eight crazy girls, we were absolutely nuts. He was alright; he’s a nice guy and we got on well.”

She gave Tameside Reporter readers a sneak peak of what to expect from the show: “There’s a bit where George’s favourite sport is football so we all had to go to an AstroTurf place and play bubble football.

“Eight girls and George in these bubble footballs and you’re like Sumo wrestlers bouncing off each other, it’s hilarious.”

The show filmed for a gruelling 14 hours a day in a mansion on the outskirts of London in Surrey which Alexandra said was “amazing.”

When asked if she’d do something similar again, she was in no doubt: “100% I’d do it again, it was so funny.

“It was one of the best experiences of my life. It’s made me come out of my shell so much because I suffer from anxiety and have most of my life.

“Now I’ve done this I’ve got my confidence back. It’s just made me feel like a normal person, it doesn’t affect me half as much as it used to.”

Alexandra’s episode of ‘Game of Clones’ airs at 7:30pm on Monday 6 March on E4.
