Here’s your host:Sir Paddy McGuiness!

Hello and welcome to a very special edition of 1066 Take Me Out!

(Crowd: ooooooh!)

As we’re all aware our dear king, Edward the Confessor, has died and we’re all really cut up about it.

SAMPLE


But today we have a special edition.

Tonight, our contestants will be playing for more than just a maiden’s hand.

They will be playing for the throne of England!

(Crowd: ooooooh!)

SAMPLE


Each Englishman has a light.

If they like what they see they keep their light on.

If they don’t like what they see then...

NO LIKEY, NO LIGHTY!

SAMPLE


SAMPLE

Let the pina see the colada!

First man, reveal yourself....


My Name’s HaraldHardrada and I’m from Norway!

SAMPLE


Remember:

NO LIKEY, NO LIGHTY!

SAMPLE


Harald

No one promised me that I should be King. They didn’t have the right!

As King of Norway I should be King of England, like my ancestor King Canute!

SAMPLE

HaraldHardrada


Harald

I have an alliance with the King of Scotland so this will bring harmony and security to England. I also have the support of Harold’s brother Tosti.

As King of Norway I would get a lot of support from the Vikings who live in the north.

SAMPLE


Harald

I won’t take land off England. My supporters have plenty of land back in Norway and Denmark.

As long as you pay me lots of lovely taxes I will leave your land alone.

SAMPLE


So Englishmen and ladies, if you think Harald is the perfect king for you then …

SAMPLE

  • Remember:

  • He’s the popular Viking who just wants your taxes.

  • He’s the true heir of Canute and thinks Edward was a fake.

  • His support come in the North and he’s not afraid of a fight!


SAMPLE

Let the hokey see the cokey!

Second man, reveal yourself....


My name’s William and I’m from Normandy!

SAMPLE


Remember:

NO LIKEY, NO LIGHTY!

SAMPLE


William

Edward actually promised that I would be King in 1051.

Even Harold from Wessex promised that I should be King!

Harold is a liar!

Choose me, not him!

SAMPLE


William

God and the Pope are my allies and you don’t get better than that!

The Pope has given me his banner to fight against that liar Harold.

SAMPLE


William

If I have to fight for the throne I’ll have to pay my army with your land!

But if you choose me, you might get to keep your land as I wont have to fight.

SAMPLE


So Englishmen and ladies, if you think Will is the perfect king for you then …

Remember:

  • He’s the holy Norman with support from the Pope.

  • He’s says everyone’s promised him the throne, even Harold from Wessex.

  • Look out, he might just take your land if your not careful!

SAMPLE


SAMPLE

Let the chimney see the sweep!

Third man, reveal yourself....


My name’s Harold and I’m from Wessex, England!

SAMPLE


Remember:

NO LIKEY, NO LIGHTY!

SAMPLE


Harold of Wessex

King Edward promised that I would be King just before he died.

Edward would want the crown to go to the most powerful Anglo-Saxon in England. An Englishman should rule England!

SAMPLE

Harold of Wessex


Harold

The Witan, a meeting made up of all the most powerful people in England, elected me to be King.

Everyone who matters in England is my friend and ally.

SAMPLE


Harold

I’m the biggest landowner in England.

I don’t have to pay for my army with taxes or land.

My supporters already own them!

So choose me and you keep your land!

SAMPLE


So Englishmen and ladies, if you think Hazza is the perfect king for you then …

SAMPLE

  • Remember:

  • He’s the local boy made good who is popular throughout England.

  • He says he is Edward’s rightful heir.

  • However, can you believe a word he says?


How fantastic was that!

SAMPLE

What a difficult choice!

Any one of our strapping lads would make a fine King of England!

We don’t expect you to choose straight away!


Single Men – Reveal Yourselves!
