Jon holds his nerve on national television

John Whitehead on the Alan Titchmarsh Show

One of Cleankill's directors was in the limelight when he appeared on national television with Alan Titchmarsh.

Jon Whitehead was asked to appear in ITV’s Alan Titchmarsh Show as an expert on wasps. Jon talked about why wasps are behaving erratically at this time of year. He explained that they are jobless and often get drunk on fermented fruit.

Jon brought a large wasps’ nest to the show so viewers could see what a nest is like close up. Jon surprised Alan, the audience and other viewers with a story about how he once passed out after stepping on a wasps nest and being stung multiple time – highlighting the danger wasps can pose.

Jon said: “I was delighted to get the opportunity to go on the show. I was a little nervous as the show was being broadcast live and tried not to think about the millions of people who were watching."
