Last week Diggerland Kent played host to former Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallett, who was launching the new 888casino’s Millionaire Genie game. She was on a date with Troy Stapleton, whose wish was granted by 888.com and ourselves to go digger racing with the actress-turned-model.
Andy Ballantyne, Managing Director of Diggerland, called it “the best photo shoot we’ve ever done”, and even managed to get a little signed picture, which is now carefully stored under lock and key!
Miss Pallett shot to fame as Jo Sugden in the ITV soap Emmerdale, but she only clinched the job by lying on her CV about being a whizz on a motorbike. The show’s bosses wrote the bike into her character’s story and only found out on the first day of filming that she barely knew how to sit on one and had fibbed about her licence. So once she got behind the wheel of our Dumper Trucks we were all on high alert!
But despite falling out of a scoop while trying to bat away a wasp, screaming her lungs out as she crashed a JCB up a hill and almost falling out the window of a 9 tonne JCB as it turned on one side, it was a fun-filled day for all!
Diggerland is the UK’s ultimate adventure park where people of all ages and abilities can ride and drive real full-size diggers. With over 18 different attractions including giant diggers, tractors, Go-Karts, Dumper Trucks, the Skyshuttle, and our world famous Spindizzy, Diggerland promises a great day out for the whole family!
