We all know if you don’t share it on social media, it didn’t happen. Take a photo at one of the locations on the walking tours and share it on Instagram or Twitter using #TPEBehindTheScreens and #Manchester, #Liverpool or #Edinburgh and you could win a VIP city break for 2 to Manchester and an exclusive tour of the ITV Granada Border studio with a weather masterclass.
