A Nottingham Trent University student starred in Channel 4’s new documentary series, ‘Party Island: Summer In Zante.’
Katie Griffiths, 22, was one of many Brits that the show followed around the party hotspot after covid-19 restrictions eased last summer.
The three-part programme documented the life of Brits in Zante during the summer of 2021, following them around Laganas on their summer jobs as holidaymakers and club reps.
Katie, who works for event promoters Zante Bible, was approached by producers from Channel 4 wanting to document her day to day life in Laganas.
The third-year media productions student, said: “I set boundaries with the director straight away, I didn’t want to embarrass myself or my family on TV.
“I was excited to be on national TV but also nervous as I didn’t want the media to make me out to be something I’m not.”
Katie added that she wouldn’t pre-drink or get excessively drunk to avoid making a scene for viewers.
As the show was new, Katie said she was “sceptical” and didn’t know what to expect as the mainstream media had compared it to the likes of The Inbetweeners and Sun, Sex and Suspicious Parents.
After establishing the boundaries with the directors, Katie took part in the show in the best interest of Zante Bible.
“I did it to build brand awareness for Zante Bible and it helped us gain nearly ten thousand followers, a goal we had for a long time.
“Reality TV is not my career goal but I enjoyed it and I wouldn’t necessarily decline all offers given to me.”
Party Island: Summer In Zante is available to watch now on All 4.
