Oprah ticket win

A GYMPIE woman, who wished to remain anonymous, is one of 3000 lucky people who scored tickets to see Oprah when the talk show queen films two episodes in Sydney.

Tickets were offered in an Olympic Games-style ballot and the woman was still in disbelief yesterday after receiving the invitation from the Oprah Show camp.

Producers have told the winning audience to wear bright-coloured clothes because they would appear on television, and to book their own flights and accommodation.

Oprah is known for showering her audiences with generous gifts, so who knows what is in store for the lucky lady from Gympie.
