TEN-year-old Sophie Haylock is not "bovvered" at the prospect of appearing in front of the TV cameras on Monday.
She will be doing a few impressions of a number of characters who feature on one of the BBC's biggest modern comedy hits, The Catherine Tate Show.
But they will be done in front of a live audience, both in the studio and at home, on a Catherine Tate special of Channel Four's The New Paul O'Grady Show.
Sophie, of Tower Road, Friday Bridge, won the chance to appear on the show after her uncle filmed her a few weeks ago when she was doing some of her impressions.

And Sophie, who attends Friday Bridge Primary School, said: "My aunt Wendy sent the video to The New Paul O'Grady Show and then a woman rang, asking me questions and whether I would like to appear on the show."
Parents John and Rose said Sophie loved doing the impressions, notably of care-free schoolgirl Lauren, inset, Jewish mobile snack bar owners Irene and Vern, and petitioner Geordie Georgie, among others.

She has now been able to do the impressions for more than a year since she started watching the show and has continued to improve.
Mr Haylock said: "She never misses the show - we have to record it for her."
And Mrs Haylock said: "She got picked out of no end of children to go on the show.
"She is going to be on the show for a few minutes to do a couple of her impressions and then, hopefully, get asked a couple of questions."
Sophie is also hoping to meet Catherine Tate and Paul O'Grady backstage after the show, which goes on air live at 5pm.
