January 2023. Another successful Panto season at the Carriageworks in Leeds where Jez played Buttons in Cinderella. With another 72 performances to add to his 13 year run in Leeds =over 900 performances. This is something Jez is particularly proud of.
Jez was back on Coronation Street in Oct 2017 as a Weatherfield FM DJ part of the storyline bringing the legendary Vic Reeves onto the Street. This is the second time on the hallowed cobbles for Jez after he appeared as ‘John Meadows’ in 2010. This followed him arresting Cain Dingle in 'Emmerdale'.

He has played 'Scarecrow' in Shone Productions tour of 'The Wizard of Oz' with Anna Williamson.
But the most nervous he has ever been was watching two of showbiz's greats walk out onto the set for a line run "To me To you!!!" Jez played a highjacked coachman opposite Paul and Barry Chuckle in 'Chucklevision'.
Jez has become a pantomime veteran having played the comic lead in 24 Pantos.
