AN AWARD winning limousine company is set to be the star of a new reality television show.

Shrouded in mystery, the show will see cameras follow guests using Lytham-based Jet Set Limousines.

The pilot will be filmed over this weekend with cameras installed inside all of the firm’s limousines, and crews trailing the customers to and from their special events.

A £1.2m budget has been set aside for the producers to go ahead with the show, which is currently unnamed and under a blanket of secrecy.

Kevin Hinds, owner of Jet Set Limousines, has never appeared on television before and says he is apprehensive about how his firm will be perceived.

He said: “It was one of fear and delight in equal measure because this is fly-on-the-wall stuff and anything can go wrong.

“I have to make sure for the purpose of my company everything goes well and we can deliver the perfect experience for my clients.”

Customers using the luxury cars will be interviewed on the way to their various destinations.

Mr Hinds has welcomed the idea of a reality show at his company, and says it is all down to the unique personalities of his drivers that clinched the deal.

He added: “We are very pleased we have been chosen and we are mindful we have to get it right. “

He paid tribute to his team of drivers, who he says won the production company over.

He added: “In the end it came down to the warmth and the personalities of the drivers.

“They have got great personalities and I think that came across on camera.”

The show has also brought with it the opportunity for Mr Hinds to increase his workforce and employ more chauffeurs in time for work to begin on the new series.

Candidates will be provided with information about an open evening, which gives them an insight into the company before being selected for interview.
