A YOUNG Huddersfield woman has landed a glamorous job in TV.
Serena Johnson, of Bradley, who has just turned 20, is to move to Bristol after landing a job as a researcher with Endemol UK, the makers of Big Brother, Fame Academy and Changing Rooms.
The job is Serena's third success of her brief career.
At only 18 she was accepted on the Foundation Placement Scheme, a pilot scheme to address the under-represenatation of black and minority ethnic people in the TV industry in Yorkshire.
She was chosen from 700 applicants for one of 16 places on the scheme, which involved Yorkshire TV and the Fair Play Partnership.
From there, she was recruited as a junior researcher for Calendar, where she has been working ever since.
She initially aimed to go to university after leaving Rastrick High School and Huddersfield New College.
But she opted out after securing her place on the Foundation Placement Scheme.
She has also been selected to attend the educational arm of the Media Guardian Edinburgh TV Festival - Television and Young People.
The event is the leading forum for young people hoping to work in television.
She will be supported by Screen Yorkshire, which promotes broadcast media in Yorkshire.
Serena said: "I'm so excited to be going to the festival. I never expected to be accepted.
"I've already signed up for the masterclass with Pop World and have since arranged work experience with Channel 4 as well."
Serena lives with her mother, Ann-Marie Johnson, sister Hayley, 12, and brother Jason, 18, in Keldregate.
Five years ago they shot to fame as the family of the week on Channel 4's The Big Breakfast.
It was this TV appearance that fired Serena's enthusiasm for the industry.
"We were on TV for five days and went down to London and stayed in a penthouse.
"It was that that made me want to work in TV," she said.
"The lives of the production team were just so exciting.
"Now I go to work and don't feel like I'm at work."
