Jackie rose to prominence in February after she appeared in the viral Handforth Parish Council meeting, which was viewed millions of times. When Mrs Weaver (the stand-in-clerk) kicked Brian Tolver, parish chairman, out of the virtual meeting, it was chaos.
Jackie Weaver protested, telling him: “You don’t have authority over here Jackie Weaver!”
She has since appeared on the opening skit for the BRIT Awards and is about to launch the second series of her podcast ‘Jackie Weaver has the Authority.’
Jackie was rated 14/1 in February to be a part of I’m a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here.
Jackie spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk regarding her time in the spotlight. Jackie said that she spent many years trying raise awareness about the Town and Parish Councils, but not enough is known about their invaluable assets.
“My brief time in the spotlight has allowed me to increase my profile, which is very important to me.”
Jackie said that she was unaware of the Brits and saw the Brits as an interview opportunity.
“The excitement and amazement of other people I had told soon took root and I felt really intimidated.
It was a great team who made it possible and gave me the confidence to do it.
She said that her podcast was the best thing she liked. The kindness shown me by’stars,’ who have taken the time to listen and share their knowledge with me is touching.
The podcast’s first episode featured guests Jeremy Vine, and Anton Du Beke (ex-Strictly Professional).
Since the Handforth Parish Council meeting became viral, rumors circulated that Jackie Weaver was going to be walking onto TV screens this year’s Strictly or appearing on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
Jackie stated that her Strictly Chances were “Alas No – my great chance has gone now Anton is a Judge.” Perhaps they will think about me if there is a shortage of judges in one week?
After a temporary stint of two weeks last year, when Motsi Makabee (a fellow judge) was forced to isolate due to Covid, Anton Du Beke will now be a permanent fixture to the panel.
