Up-and-coming para player Shae Thakker (class 10) will showcase his talents on a primetime TV show on Saturday night.
The 13-year-old, who recently won team gold and individual silver at the UK School Games, will appear on Go For It at 7pm on ITV.
The show, hosted by Stephen Mulhern, features people with impressive skills and talents performing challenges against the clock.
The nature of Shae’s challenge remains a mystery until the show airs, but the Denham player said filming the programme a few weeks ago was “an amazing experience that I will never forget”.
“During the filming my heart was pounding I was excited and nervous facing the audience
“I was grateful for the opportunity to show my skill to everyone, I enjoyed every bit of the experience from filming the VT at home, having my own greenroom at the studios and meeting the whole cast of the production.
“I’m extremely excited being on TV.”
Don’t forget to tune in from 7pm to 8pm on ITV this Saturday to watch Shae in action.
