This morning I went to St John the Evangelist church in Moulsham, Chelmsford, for an unusual assignment.
It was a young people’s ‘Big Brother’ style event, in which a number of housemates have been shut in an upstairs church room and are remaining there for 24 hours doing fun tasks and interviewing special guests. They were looking for a celebrity to take part, but couldn’t find one, so I was asked instead. It was great fun – I got to go up in dramatic style in the disabled lift to meet the four remaining housemates, who interviewed me about cartooning and had to find out some specific information in order to get points so they could have lunch.
The picture shows my friend Ruth, and the youth worker, (we’ll call him David), talking to the housemates in a Big-Brotherly kind of way. The screens show what is going on in the house, and people can come in and watch whilst buying cake for charity. I think that is a correct assessment of what was happening anyway.
If ever you can’t find a celebrity for your event and think that I might do please talk to my agent.
