It was the wake-up call of dreams for Victoria Feeley to discover she’d landed Clyde 1’s £10,000 top prize from her favourite radio DJ, George Bowie.
The 21-year-old from Tollcross now has a toss-up between spending her winnings on a holiday of a lifetime to Las Vegas or a brand new set of wheels.
Commenting on the call from Clyde 1, Victoria said: “I was fast asleep and woke up because my phone was ringing. By the time I reached for it I missed the call. I was kicking myself as I knew that the Cash Hits Extra winner was going to be announced and I thought I had missed my big chance. But then my phone rang again and I couldn’t believe my luck when George Bowie was on the other end!
“I picked up my little dog Mylo and ran to tell my flatmate. I was shaking with excitement!”
This big win is a first for the SSE Hydro Safety Steward and she’s kick-starting the celebrations by treating her Westie, Mylo, to a haircut.
Speaking about what she’ll do with the £10,000, Victoria said: “I’m going to choose what I spend my winnings on wisely. I’ll either organise the trip of a lifetime to Las Vegas with my boyfriend Jack this summer or I’ll buy my first car. I’m still learning to drive but having a brand new car sitting outside my house will be the best motivation to pass. I’ve got some thinking to do!”
The Tollcross 21-year-old admits to being a huge Clyde 1 fan, having listened to the station for years. George Bowie is her favourite DJ and she’s seen him perform at the SSE Hydro whilst carrying out her stewarding duties.
Speaking about the Cash Hits Extra winner, George Bowie said: “I was so happy to be Victoria’s £10,000 wake-up call! It’s going to be really exciting for her deciding between her dream holiday and her first car.”
