MORNING TV star Kate Garraway was in Selston on Friday afternoon during a special careers day for students.
The Creative Industries Day at Selston Arts and Community College was organised by Eastwood MP Gloria De Piero and saw 200 pupils from across the area visit the school to pick up tips on how to get the jobs they want.
Ms Garraway was joined at the event by former GMTV weather girl Claire Nasir, screenwriter Billy Ivory who penned the recent TV adaptation of DH Lawrence’s Women in Love, BBC 6 Music DJ Chris Hawkins and Advertiser editor Peter Hemmett.
Gloria said: “We approached every secondary school in the area and asked them to send any school leavers who expressed an interest in pursuing a career in the creating industries.
“I organised the event because I was really struck by the comments of some young people who told me that they wanted to get into music or TV or be an artist or writer but each one told me that there was no-one to ask about how to get jobs like these.”
