Shownotes

Jimmy Broadhouse runs a contract grass cutting business.

In 2019, he posted a photograph on social media of a council owned grass open space he had just cut with a comment "To the kids around here playing football, they think its Wembley - so I cut it like it is"

That single post went viral and set in train an extraordinary chain of events that resulted in TV appearances, a tie-up with historic mower maker Ransomes and an invite to cut the pitch at Wembley Stadium.

Today he is widely recognised as Jimmy the Mower, producing videos, making personal appearances, visiting sports clubs, offering a range of merchandise - and is regarded as a turf influencer.

Jimmy talks to Chris about his whirlwind few years which he originally thought would blow over within a week.

Episode is 37 minutes
