Gympie nurse in millionaire hot seat

THE television show Millionaire Hot Seat will feature a well known Gympie midwife tonight.

Melissa Orrman applied to be a contestant 18 months ago and flew down to Melbourne for the show on St Patrick's Day in March this year.

She took a support person - her son Donovan - and they were able to stay two nights as there wasn't a flight back the evening after the show was taped.

"So we went to see Strictly Ballroom," Melissa laughed.

Melissa has often been called the Pink Lady in Gympie, so decided it was appropriate to wear pink on the show too.

Of course, she wasn't allowed to tell us how well she did.

"Who knows? I could have made a total fool of myself - or maybe I won some money," she said.

 To find out how Melissa travelled on Millionaire Hot Seat, tune into Channel 9 tonight at 5.26pm.

"I hope everyone who watches enjoys it ... I'm sure at the very least, they will be entertained," she said.
