JB Gill rose to fame as a member of one of the UK’s biggest boybands – JLS. They dominated the charts for five years, boasting 5 number 1 singles, over 10 million record sales worldwide and a multitude of awards.
Now an established member of the farming community, JB has used his success within the entertainment industry to highlight his passion to educate children about the origins of their food and he is the lead presenter on CBeebies’ BAFTA-nominated television series, ‘Down On The Farm’ (created for children aged 0-6 years, teaching them about life on the farm and in the outdoors). JB’s enthusiasm for farming life and knowledge of countryside issues has seen him
regularly contribute to BBC’s ‘Countryfile’ and ‘Springwatch’.
JB performed with his wife, Chloe on the ITV Primetime show ‘Dance, Dance, Dance’, for which they won ‘Best Performance’ at the National Reality TV Awards 2017. Most recently, JB has presented on BBC's ‘Songs Of Praise’ and ‘Springtime On The Farm’ and ‘Big Week At The Zoo’ both for Channel 5. JB also presents BBC South East’s ‘River Walks: The Stour’, a regional show in which he walked 50 miles from the river Stour’s origins in the Kent Downs, to Pegwell bay.
We are excited to have JB joining us on Saturday 28th March, with his interviewer. We're looking forward to hearing him share stories about his life, his career (what it was like to be part of the most successful boy band of its time) and how his faith has become very real to him.
JB will also be taking some questions from you - so bring our best one on the night!
