Hank Birtwhistle was the host at a Country and Western night that Charlie Whelan took Bet Gilroy to on Valentine’s Night in February 1994. Part way through evening, Hank interrupted the singing and dancing and took to the microphone to ask the contestants on stage including, much to her surprise, Bet. Furious with Charlie for setting her up, Bet scowled through the contest and came fifth out of six.
