The Bridge is a new Channel 4 television show beginning on Sunday 11th October, in which strangers band together to build a bridge in order to win £100,000.
If the show doesn’t sound crazy enough, there is a mega twist at the end when only one contestant can receive the money, and then it becomes up to them whether they share it out or keep it to themselves.
The Bridge is a five part series and will air every Sunday until Sunday 8th November.
Who is Billie on The Bridge?
Billie is a 30 year old publicist from London who is taking part in the Channel 4 reality television series The Bridge.
Her website states: “Billie Dee Gianfrancesco is an award-winning public relations consultant who has worked with some of the world’s most exciting businesses and personalities.”
Billie’s Instagram name is billiedee_g, and she currently has just over 2,000 followers, though no doubt that number will quickly be increasing as the show airs!
After struggling with alcohol and drug addiction five years ago, Billie is now an advocate for addiction after becoming sober. She also shares her recovery journey on her Instagram page.
Who is Billie from The Bridge’s mum?
You may recognise Billie due to her famous mother, Trisha Goddard, the television presenter.
Trisha posted a photograph of her daughter Billie prior to the first episode of The Bridge airing on Channel 4. She wrote:
“‘Do you think your kids will ever follow you into TV?’ Me: ‘Nah!’ What can I say? Kid got bored in #lockdown and signed up for what will be one of the toughest physical & mental challenges on the box… Sheesh…. Never saw it coming. Never been so proud!”
