BFBS And Ticket For Troops Invite You To Quiz Vinnie Jones


Next week, actor, producer and former professional footballer Vinnie Jones will be in the spotlight in a free online Q&A session hosted by BFBS in partnership with the Tickets For Troops charity on the BFBS Radio Facebook page.

With live events cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tickets For Troops and BFBS want to ensure that the UK military and their families continue to feel entertained and supported.

About the Facebook event, 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!

So, for one hour from 6pm UK time on Tuesday, January 26, one-time hardman of football-turned-hardman Hollywood actor, will be answering questions live from the lucky participants who will join him at the Facebook event: ‘Quiz Vinnie Jones’.

Vinnie will be joined by BFBS broadcaster, Hal Stewart, who 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.”

Simply tune in to the BFBS Radio Facebook page at 6pm on 26th January to watch the interview and ask questions: https://www.facebook.com/BFBSRadio.
