STARDOM beckons for parents who have been experiencing life in front of the camera.

The online community for mums and dads, Weston-super-Mum, has now launched its own television show with

The brainchild of Richard Browne and Rebecca Condron, Weston-super-Mum on the Sofa broadcasts every week from The Blakehay Theatre in Wadham Street, Weston.

Rebecca said: “These are exciting times for all involved.

“Now, not only do members of our thriving community support each other via our website and organise events all over town but we also have our very own TV chat show.”

The show, broadcast on, is the fruit of a group of dedicated volunteers and mums and dads who want to make a difference to the lives of families by giving parents a voice in the community.

The technical expertise of Richard Browne, creative director of, and studio manager, Keely Major, pulls together the views and opinions of Weston talent that may previously had little coverage on television.

Richard added: “The mums have come up with an interesting and fun TV show, which covers subjects that will resonate closely with other parents in Weston.

“The presenting and production team has worked hard to ensure that the show is really about community and have a giggle too, sometimes too loudly for our microphones.”

Each week, Weston-super-Mum on the Sofa invites guests to join the presenters and talk about issues important to parents in North Somerset.

Becky Peddle from Springboard Opportunities Group and Lisa Sweeting from Cancer Research’s Race for Life have already sat on the red sofa, giving information about their work and the people they help.

Viewers can also win competition prizes and find out what is going on for families in Weston.

Presenter, Amy Nation, explained how the first show went for her.

She said: “It felt amazing that it had gone so well and that we could all sit back and relax a little and just talk as if it was just an everyday meet up of friends.

“It was a fabulous atmosphere and I know it will be one of the best things we will do as a group and as friends.”

Weston-super-Mum on the sofa can be seen now on and on, which launches next month.
