A Transport for London worker from Dagenham got a taste of life as a TV star when he appeared on a popular ITV quiz show that is being broadcast today.

Freddie Knebel appears on this afternoon’s episode of Tenable, presented by Warwick Davies, as part of a team made up of colleagues who worked at Wateloo Station – appropriately named Mind The Doors.

The 31-year-old, who recorded the epsiode back in June, told the Post the whole experience had been a unique thrill.

He said: “It was really great to get down there and take part in it, we managed to get through to the final so that was good.”

Tenable revolves around trying to fill lists of ten, such as ‘top ten most populated cities in Italy’ or ‘first ten James Bond films’.

There are a series of rounds to help teams build up their prize pot, and each team member who wins their round can take part in the final to determine whether or not they get to take home the money they’ve banked up.

The captain goes through to the final no matter what.

“Some of the questions were a bit difficult,” Freddie revealed.

“We had one on the different jobs of the village people and that was alright, but they got progressively harder.”

In the final round, Mind The Doors were asked to name the top 10 museums and galleries in London by visitor numbers.

How did they get on? Well, you’ll have to watch the show to find out.

But one thing’s for sure. To Freddie, the real prize was the grand day out he got to have with some of his mates.

He said: “The whole thing really brought us all closer together and it was great when we got to the final round and could all help each other.

“We don’t all work together anymore, some of us have moved on from Waterloo Station, but we’ve all taken Thursday off work and we’ll be meeting up round someone’s house to have some food and watch it all together.

“It should be a really nice afternoon.”

Tenable is on weekdays at 3pm on ITV.
