An Eastbourne pensioner has featured on a TV show about OAPs behaving badly - and the show is now looking to recruit more of the town’s residents.

Leapy Lee appeared on the Channel 5 documentary, which was filmed in Tenerife and aired in July 2014.

After attracting a strong audience, the producers have decided to make a further six episodes to air next year and are appealing to people in Eastbourne to get in touch.

OAPs Behaving Badly is looking for ‘up-for-it’ and outrageous over-60s who are the life and soul of the party.

Rather than spending their retirement sitting at home, the show wants to find pensioners who are sociable, confident, chatty and out of the ordinary.

Whether they’re getting married, a complete party animal, taking on adventure sports or blasting out punk music, producers are hoping to hear from any OAPs who are doing things you would never expect them to do at their age.

Alternatively, if they’ve got a big event coming up in the near future that would make for an exciting feature, the show would love to hear from them.

To be considered, or to put forward your mum, dad, grandma, grandad, next door neighbour or friend, get in touch with assistant producer Ruth Wright at ruth.wright@barcroftproductions.com.

For more information and an informal chat, with no commitment assumed, get in touch as soon as possible on 0207 033 1032.

A clip of the first episode of OAPs behaving badly can be found at www.channel5.com/shows/oaps-behaving-badly. The show was filmed in Tenerife, where they have created a ‘pensioner playground’.
