All day on Friday 19th May... three couples tried to win the big day of their dreams on Brighton's Juice 107.2
Loosely based on the 1999 film of the same name, Juice 107.2's 'Runaway Bride' challenged three couples from Sussex to get as far as they could from Juice HQ... AND BACK AGAIN, in a day. The couple that scored the most points in our runaway bride game... got their wedding sorted by us.
The furthest to flee, and get back in time for tea...
Gets Juice to sort the wedding, pretty-much for free!
Here's how it unfolded:
Runaway Bride: Recap
Runaway Bride: Three couples went head-to-head to win a wedding... Whoever got the furthest away from Juice towers, and then back in time for 5pm would win their whole day, on us.Posted by Juice Brighton on Wednesday, 7 June 2017
James Dunham kicks off runaway day by reading the news... wearing a bride's veil.
All three finalists are given their second, and surprise challenge. To go and get Hanna and James from the Morning Show... the best breakfast they can, for free. Whoever comes back with the best one... wins an extra 5 miles.
08:50am - Hanna and James set our three couples the challenge of blagging a free breakfast in Brighton.
The winner would receive five extra miles.
After much deliberation (and a taste test) the winner of the extra breakfast challenge was Kane and Neusa.
Kane and Neusa are at Brighton station headed towards Manchester.
Amiee and Dan are on a track to London Victoria and are looking to get to York.
They managed to get free train tickets - thanks Southern Rail!
