TWO Huddersfield people will be among six contestants cooped up in a car for a whole week - in a bid to win one.

They will live in the car 24 hours a day in Huddersfield's Kingsgate shopping centre, as part of a competition run by a local radio station and starting on Saturday.

Tony Boyers, a self- employed joiner from Taylor Hill, and Tina Hanley, of Sheepridge, an assembler at Holsets engineers, will spend their time inside a Suzuki Grand Vitara in the middle of the centre.

The competition is run by Pulse radio to launch its Week on Wheels 2004.

One contestant will be voted out each day, based on how well they present themselves on the radio and how well they do in the series of gruelling and not so gruelling challenges.

At the end of the week one of them will emerge the victor and will drive away with a new Suzuki Ignis.

A Pulse spokesman said this year's competition would be tougher than last year's.

Tina, who celebrates her 34th birthday on Tuesday, said she entered the competition because she thought it would be a challenge.

" I smoke 20 cigarettes a day, so giving up those will be difficult. But I'll have to cope."

Gregarious Tony, 43, said

his fiancée, Dawn Armitage, and his son, 12-year-old Jake, think he is barmy.
