Casting call opens for new reality TV series ‘set to be filmed at Lympne Castle’ near Hythe

People in Kent are being given the chance to star in a new reality TV show – which it is understood will be filmed at a historic castle.

A casting call has opened for a role said to be linked to a new series at Lympne Castle near Hythe which has recently been taken over by celebrity owners.

Businesswoman and TV star Dr Ann Kaplan Mulholland snapped up the historic building with her husband Dr Stephen Mulholland for £5.5 million after it was put on the market for double that price.

The pair have a whole host of plans for the Grade I-listed venue and previously told KentOnline how they would like to film a new series which they hope will bring “positive attention” to the county.

Now casting company The Casting Unicorn has announced it is looking to fill a paid role for a “lady-in-waiting” for a new show being filmed in Lympne.

The company said: “We’re casting this on-camera role for a new reality series.

“Please note that you must be Kent-based to apply.

“You will assist the series star and help organise, prep for, and host events for guests.

“The Lady-In-Waiting may also assist with interior design duties.

“This role would be best suited to someone very outgoing with a strong hospitality or events background and an interest in interior design.”

A separate role for a footman was previously advertised but it is understood to have already been filled.

Due to the retirement of the former owner, the 700-year-old castle was put on the market for £11 million in 2021, but the sale was only finalised last February.
