Northampton's own chatty man Alan Carr is offering his home town a chance to quit their job on TV and walk away with a year's salary in prize money.

His new CHannel 4 series "I Don't Like Mondays" is looking for studio audience members who are prepared to take the plunge and fight for the prize of skipping work for a whole year.

The show brings together an audience made up of people from across the UK with a range of different salaries armed with resignation letters.

At the end of the show, one of them will resign there and then, and walk away with a year's salary.

Chris Fouracre, managing director of Alaska TV, which is producing the show, said: “We’ve all had that dread of the alarm clock going off on Monday morning, signalling the start of another working week.

"Hopefully I Don’t Like Mondays will be a televisual antidote to that universal feeling and Alan is the perfect man to deliver it.”
