Manxman Jimmy charms TV viewers

A local builder says he's bewildered, after being shot to fame on a popular television show.

Jimmy Whittle appeared on Channel 4's The Restoration Man last Thursday, where he amused viewers with his adventurous personality and poignant back story - whlle renovating a family property in Lancaster.

A petition has since been launched calling for Jimmy to replace architect Ceorge Clarke as the show's presenter!

The Colby man admits it's been 'weird' - but told Manx Radio filming was a lot of fun.
