I had to be extremely serious for a new promotional video

STEVE CANAVAN: Take note of why I love this country so much

Have your say

This week I’ve been in London filming a promotional video. Everyone knows me for being a showbiz guru with an unhealthy appetite for all things glitzy and glamour, but this time I shot a news reel which you can see by logging on to my new website officialcherylgibbs.com

I filmed a 60-second news update in a similar style to the one on BBC3. It was shot in front of a green screen, which then gets graphics superimposed over it to create a ‘studio’ look.

I loved it and although it wasn’t my usual personality-led work, I enjoyed the novelty of being serious.

Have a look and let me know your thoughts! Most seem to say ‘bring the old Gobby back’ but I quite liked it – I even wore a suit jacket and everything!
