Joe on Coronation Street

The August 2016 bank holiday weekend saw Joe making his debut on Coronation Street!! OK so not strictly true although he did have a starring role. Joe was asked to host one of ITV’s flagship events for I AM TEAM GB.

It was a massive nationwide Olympic celebration of the success for team GB and an opportunity to get people inspired and active, taking part in sports days all over the country. This particular event took place on the cobbles of Coronation Street and Joe was asked to host the day and keep it running smoothly.

With 200 people visiting every hour for 6 hours, this was a big undertaking and involved creating a party atmosphere. The activities also included interviewing Team GB medalists such as Marcus Ellis and Bianca Walkden who won bronze in the badminton doubles and Taikwondo respectively and Eleanor Barker Gold medalist in the women Track Cycling Team Pursuit. 

Joe also interviewed and introduced a number of Corrie stars and cast members. The day ended with an impromptu conga around the cobbles of Corrie!!
