If you've ever purchased a counterfeit toy, ITV wants to speak with you.

The TV broadcaster is looking for someone who has had a bad experience after buying a counterfeit product or toy, for a special report in its Anglia Tonight programme, due to be shown at the end of next week (ending November 30th). 

For example, they're seeking a mum or dad who ended up buying a fake toy for their child.

ITV needs to find someone in the Anglia region (Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and the Milton Keynes area).

If that sounds like you, you can get in touch with ITV by emailing lauren.hall@itv.com or calling 07824 334 236.

You can also tweet Lauren @ITVLaurenHall.

"We feel this would really help to strengthen our report and help to emphasise the dangers of buying counterfeit goods," Hall told ToyNews. 

The report would involve a short interview with the participant and a few set-up shots, which ITV says it can arrange for a time to suit.
