Timmy Matley took part of the “The Great British Sewing Bee” special for BBC’s “Children in Need” on October 24th, 2014 alongside comedian Helen Lederer, radio presenter Gemma Cairney and TV critic Kathryn Flett.
The show was presented by Anita Rani and the judges were May Martin and Patrick Grant.
The contestants were given three tasks:
1. A Mens T-Shirt
2. Create something totally different from an existing ballgown
3. Make something that is inspired by your childhood memories
Timmy’s choices were a light blue T-shirt, a very fancy promdress and a childrens red pleather jacket that was inspired by Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video. He talked about his aunt Sheila during the sewing process of the jacket, telling the audience that she had made a similiar jacket for him when he was little.
A very lovely photo of him wearing said jacket was shown during the show.
Needless to say that Timmy won all three of the tasks given.
The show was part of the BBC2 charity special to raise money for “Childreen in Need”.
