Preston signs up for more TV

The Ordinary Boy to present politics programme

The Ordinary Boys frontman Preston is set to expand his television career even further.

After appearing on Celebrity Big Brother at the beginning of the year, the singer will try his hand at current affairs.

Preston has been lined-up to guest present BBC South’s Politics Show on March 12.


The show will focus on Brighton’s homeless problem, a cause Preston supported during his reality TV stint after he donated his prize money to local shelter the St Patrick’s Trust.

“It would have closed down,” Preston recently told NME.COM of the night shelter. “It lost it’s government funding, so now I’m a proper hero in my road.”

The programme which is broadcast in the BBC South region – though accessible nationwide through digital receivers – will come live from the shelter at 11.55am.

Additionally, one fan can win the chance to meet Preston on the show. E

ntrants – who must be from the BBC South region – should email with an idea for a future programme.
