Joe stars in BBC re­al­ity show

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - JUNCTION 10 -

FOR­MER Ten­ter­den school­boy Joe Chicken has spent the past few days ad­just­ing to his new life on a re­mote is­land in New Zealand. Joe is one of 13 mem­bers of the pub­lic who have es­caped their or­di­nary lives for a year to ap­pear on the new se­ries of the BBC’s re­al­ity TV show Cast­away. Oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist Joe, 33, was liv­ing in Lon­don be­fore de­part­ing for Great Bar­rier Is­land, but last year he re­turned to Ash­ford to help run his elder brother Si­mon’s pub, the Fly­ing Horse in Boughton Lees. Veg­e­tar­ian Joe went to school at Home­wood. He says his motto is: “Some­times you are lucky, some­times you aren’t, what­ever your luck, peo­ple still smile if you smile at them.” Cast­away, pre­sented by Danny Wal­lace, is shown on BBC three ev­ery week­day, and on Sun­day nights on BBC 1.
