Jim worked with Rod Steiger, Anthony Perkins, David Tennant, Jeremy Brett, Ray Winstone and American Superstar Rob Lowe.

From the back streets of Salford to sharing studio space with stars like Caroline Ahern has been a joy.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
