About JJ

JJ is a self proclaimed attention seeking plonker. Being from a family of 7, his constant need for attention is next level.

A teenage girl trapped in a man-childs body…Boybands, Twitter, Make-up… you know…the norm.

Having made it into the Xfactor UK Finals Kingsland Road in 2013, his cheeky-chappy style eventually led him down a presenting route.

Hosting his own show on Capital FM and the Hits Radio in the UK and hosting many festivals in the same region, he decided to move to the Middle East where his Radio and Hosting success has continued.

He currently presents the breakfast show from 6am-10am on Channel 4 with 100,000s tuning into his show every morning.

Fave place to eat:

SALTS BURGER is the one! If it wouldn’t give me an eventual heart attack, I would smash one of them everyday.

Fave place to chill:

By the pool, obvs! Mocktail in hand 😉

Celebrity crush:

Emily Ratjakvski – I don’t know how to spell it, and I refuse to google it cause ill be looking at her for hours. Genetic jackpot winner right there.

Dream guest:

Harry Styles, met him once and he just oozes cool. The nicest celebrity ive ever met by far.

Fave Concert:

Bruno Mars – He is the ultimate pop superstar, a showman and hilariously funny on stage with his Hooligans. Would recommend a live Bruno show to anyone.

Most annoying habit:

the fact im genuinely annoying, I don’t have an off switch and it gets on peoples nerves quite a lot.

Claim to fame:

I made it to live shows On UK X-Factor in a boyband (LOL!). Wouldn’t say im proud of it, but its my only claim.
