A SOUTHWICK couple were the first contestants to be eliminated from a new BBC Saturday night gameshow.
Sandra Cooley, 43, and Elizabeth D’Arcy, 56, of Southview Road, appeared in the first episode of Prized Apart on BBC One.

The show, presented by Emma Willis and Reggie Yates, sees ten couples battle it out over a six-week period to win £100,000.
One from each couple had to fly out to Morocco to be an adventurer, taking part in a number of exhilarating challenges.
The bottom three contestants from each challenge were then flown back to the UK to join their partners in the studio in a bid to save their place on the show.
Adventurer Elizabeth finished bottom in the first challenge – a death-defying canyon swing.
And despite Sandra’s best efforts the pair were unable secure their place.
Elizabeth said: “It’s a huge achievement to even be on the show. It’s wonderful. I just wish I could have been out there for longer.
“I met some great people and I would do it all again.”
The couple decided to enter the show in a bid to win money to help fund a move to Los Angeles. However, they have since decided to stay in the UK.
