JB Gill (30) rose to fame as a member of one of the UK’s biggest boybands – JLS. They dominated the charts for five years, boasting 5 number 1 singles, over 10 million record sales worldwide and a multitude of awards.

    Four years ago, JB set up a farm in the Kent countryside, where he lives with his wife, Chloe and two-year-old son, Ace. Their smallholding successfully produces award winning KellyBronze turkeys and free-range Tamworth pork.

    Now an established member of the farming community, JB has used his success within the entertainment industry to highlight his passion to educate children about the origins of their food and he is the lead presenter on CBeebies’ BAFTA-nominated television series, ‘Down On The Farm’ (created for children aged 0-6 years, teaching them about life on the farm and in the outdoors). JB’s enthusiasm for farming life and knowledge of countryside issues has seen him regularly contribute to BBC’s ‘Countryfile’ and ‘Springwatch’.

    In 2016, JB became the first ambassador for the Mayors’ Fund for London, an independent, social mobility charity, linked to the mayoral office, seeking to empower young Londoners from all walks of life in their journey onto London’s career ladder.

    JB is currently a presenter on BBC Songs Of Praise.

    JB Presents the BAFTA & RTS nominated ‘Down On The Farm’, a seasonal series for CBeebies that explores the outdoor world of farming and the countryside.

    Down at the Farm

    From keeping livestock to harvesting vegetables, JB unearths how food is grown and where it comes from.

    Throughout the series, JB visits a variety of farms, getting stuck in with community growing projects and unique school activity clubs, working alongside children who are already embracing the outdoors and learning about their environment and food. Viewers even get a first-hand introduction to JB’s own farm! JB comments: “I spend a lot of time on the farm, it’s a passion of mine, so it is great to share that experience with the CBeebies audience.”

    The winter series of the show is currently showing weekly on Fridays at 5pm, commencing on 23rd February 2018.
