Mean Machine actor and former professional footballer Vinnie Jones will be in the spotlight on January 26 in a free online Q&A session on the BFBS Radio Facebook page.
With live events cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BFBS has partnered with the Tickets for Troops charity to ensure that the UK military and their families continue to feel entertained and supported.
About the Facebook event, former Wimbledon and Leeds United defensive midfielder Vinnie said:
“I’m thrilled to be chatting with the troops next week.
"My son was in the Household Cavalry and I have a great amount of respect for the Armed Forces and what they do.
"I also know they like a bit of banter so I’m looking forward to what they might ask me. Bring it on."
The one-time hardman of football turned hardman of Hollywood films Vinnie will be answering questions live from the lucky participants who will join him at the Facebook event: ‘Quiz Vinnie Jones’.
For one hour from 6pm UK time on Tuesday, January 26, you will have your chance to ask the former Crazy Gang member anything.
BFBS broadcaster Hal Stewart will host the event and take questions live from the online audience.
Angie Avlianos, Event Manager, BFBS Live Events said:
“We are really excited to have the legendary Vinnie Jones onboard for this exclusive Q&A.
"We really miss delivering live events so putting on an online event like this is so important to give our audience a little distraction from what’s going on in the world right now.”
