A twin who featured on TV show Take Me Out has won an academic award for being the top marketing student at the University of Central Lancashire.

Catherine Wilkinson, 22, of Nightingale Way, Oakham, was presented with the Chartered Institute of Marketing prize for the Best Marketing Student when she returned to Preston for her masters graduation.

Catherine and her twin sister Samantha, who also appeared on the ITV show in 2010 and more recently BBC’s Bargain Hunt, both gained first class BA degrees.

Catherine will now complete a PhD in human geography at the University of Liverpool looking into connecting communities through youth-led radio.
