Reality TV programme heads to Barnsley

Friday April 1 2016

**Happy April Fools' Day from We Are Barnsley!**

A NEW reality TV programme will film in Barnsley this summer - and producers want you to star in it.

'Talk of the Tarn' will air on terrestrial TV later on in the year, and will film in and around the town centre.

Producers are looking for men and women of all ages to take part, with details on how to audition set to be released in due course.

Principal photography has already taken place, and producers have snapped up some local talent. 

Local lass Olivia Taylor is one of the lucky few who will feature, and said: "Barnsley gets a lot of negative press, so I think it's brilliant that we're going to have something that will highlight just how great of a place Barnsley is."

A spokesperson said: "We've had The Only Way Is Essex, we've had Geordie Shore, but we've never had anything from God's own country, Yorkshire.

"Barnsley is a great area to focus on and we can't wait to meet the people of the town. Talk of the Tarn or 'TOTT' will show the people of Great Britain just how great of an area Barnsley is."

Yorkshire folk wouldn't say "Tarn", that's what a crockery would say! Lol. A better title would be, Talk of the Tykes

Jesus. More shame brought to barnsley. One camera sweep around the derelict town centre. Some selective editing and only picking the scruffy common bleeders. I don't talk tarn by the way despite being born here I speak proper English with an accent. Can't wait everytime I tell someone fro out of town where I'm from it will be . Baaaaarnsleh. Oh the joys

Very good WAB but you have to get up very early to catch out some Barnsley folk, some people will think it is true, but the vast majority will realise that today is 1st April. If this is true then I will show my backside on the Tarn Hall steps every Saturday morning from now until next April Fools Day.

Yet another April fool's offering a job that does not excist it's disgusting really millions unemployed and desbrite to get into work and people just want to have a laugh at there desbrite attempt to find a job it's not funny and quite frankly the people who do this should be ashamed

Reply Posted by What on Friday April 1 2016 at 21:41
Nobody in Barnsley that is unemployed is "desbrite" to get work, they all love their dole too much. Plus most folk in Barnsley can't even spell, case and point. Also, most people in this comment section is thick because they fell for April fools joke. Mind you I'd watch it if it was real just for the laughs. Barnsley is the real life version of Jeremy Kyle
