BTCC boss to appear on Secret Millionaire

sunshine.co.uk boss Chris Brown to appear on The Secret Millionaire
Chris Brown, the boss of BTCC team sponsor sunshine.co.uk, is to appear on the new series of the hit Channel 4 show The Secret Millionaire.

Brown, who has backed the Tech-Speed Motorsport team for the past two years, will appear on the first show of the new series this Sunday – where he will go undercover as a photographer in Manchester.

During his time undercover, Brown visited Talbot House - a support centre for parents with disabled children – and had to face painful memories from his past when reminded of the realities of alcoholism following a visit to homeless charity, The Mustard Tree.

His father tragically took his own life when Brown was growing up, having faced his own battle against alcoholism.

As well as a personal journey, Brown's appearance on the show gave him the opportunity to show how hard work can allow someone to make a success of their life having started with nothing.

“I'm not someone who was born into money and I've had to work hard to get to where I am today,” he said. “For me, going on The Secret Millionaire was a way to show people how they can make a success of their life, although it is true that there is also a personal element to the journey I found myself on.

“There is no doubt that appearing on the show is one of the most difficult things I have done. Of course there were some painful memories because of my father, but it was also hugely draining to take on the pretence of being someone else and see the struggles that some people face.

“While appearing on The Secret Millionaire was anything but easy, it gave me an opportunity to look at myself as well as other people and the experience has certainly changed me.”

Team sunshine.co.uk with Tech-Speed finished fourth in the Independents' team standings this season, with Paul O'Neill taking a number of podium finishes during the year.

Great program well handled with great feelings, I feel sure there will be presents for the kids with regards to the chap that turned down the cash donation. If I won the lottery (to late in life to earn it) I would love to do some thing like that, My problem is I would want to to do it every week
