Cwmbran man to join the cast of TV's The Valleys

First published in

A GWENT mechanical engineer is the latest cast member to join MTV’s The Valleys in time for its brand new series.

The Valleys, a reality television series based in Cardiff, is back on our screens on February 25 at 10pm on MTV.

The show premiered in 2012 and follows a group who moved from the South Wales Valleys to Cardiff to live out their dreams.

Joining the third series of the show is Jack Watkins, a 24-year-old from Cwmbran.

By day he is a mechanical engineer, but by night he becomes alter ego Austin Vegas, driving women wild.

He says that his favourite outfit is his fireman suit and he claims it gets the ladies’ blood running hot.

He says that being centre of attention is his main priority on a night out and his new role has given him a lot of confidence.

The former Croesyceiliog School pupil is currently living with his mother in the family home in Cwmbran.

Jack knows his fellow cast member Natalee Harris, who is from neighbouring Pontypool, through drinking in the pub where she used to work.

And he thinks there might be some unfinished business there.
