TV hunt for Jamie Oliver of IFA world

A TV production company is looking for the Jamie Oliver of the IFA world to host a financial makeover programme to be broadcast on terrestrial television.

London company Felix Productions is hunting for a future star of the small screen for a show that will advise real people on how they can efficiently manage their income, investments and assets.

The show, in the style of Ground Force and Changing Rooms, aims to show people how they can achieve life changes and fulfil long-held dreams by making the most of their financial res-ources and managing their outgoings.

Felix is scouring the IFA sector for a male or female candidate who will be outgoing and have a sparky, conversational style.

The show, as yet untitled, will be targeted at Channel 4 and candidates will be required to attend a screen test in London.

Felix Productions producer Richard Ellingham says: “We are looking for an IFA who reckons they can put across financial information in a lively, personable style and who can handle the money, adulation and star treatment.”
