RTÉ presenter Baz Ashmawy is looking for people to cast for and take part in the second series of his popular TV show ‘Wingman’.

As we get out of the traps after lockdown, maybe those dreams and unfulfilled ambitions are just waiting to be unleashed, albeit with a little helpful nudge – in the form of Baz your Wingman.

Seize the moment and do something extraordinary for yourself – or for someone close to you in your life! We all know someone who is in need of
 a Wingman.

Having guided farmer Jimmy onto the stage in front of a local sell-out crowd, helped Emma overcome her fear and battle her way into the octagon, and brought Conor and Joe on the Ultimate Lads Lads Roadtrip, Baz is looking for new participants to take under his wing and fulfil their ultimate dream in a new series of Baz Ashmawy: Wingman.

The series is about helping people to achieve a dream / ambition, to do the thing they always wanted to do before life got in the way. It might be to learn a skill or experience something they have always wanted to do.

Maybe it’s dating, a crazy adventure, a childhood dream they never forgot. It might be something you want to do with a sibling, or a friend. It might be a totally new ambition. Or maybe you don’t know what you want, but you just know that you need a wingman. Wingman Baz now wants to help make those lockdown ambitions come to life. This isn’t about something you can do yourself, but that burning dream ambition that has been out of arms reach until now! Baz will be with you every step of the way to encourage you, to mentor you, to push you across that achievable finish line!

Has lockdown let you wanting to pack up to run away with the circus, learn to new?

Do you know someone who can make you laugh and belongs on the stage?

Have the last few months left you reckoning it’s time for a big change?

No dream is too big or too small. Tell us what your dream is and why you need help making it happen.

The casting team will be making a road trip around Ireland shortly to meet people and hear about these dreams. Keep an eye out on Baz’s social media for dates, times and venues!

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the new series of Wingman will be filmed in Ireland in accordance with Government and HSE guidelines for travel and filming.
