A GWENT mechanical engineer is the latest cast member to join MTV’s The Valleys in time for its brand new series.

The Valleys, a reality television series based in Cardiff, is back on our screens on February 25 at 10pm on MTV.

The show premiered in 2012 and follows a group who moved from the South Wales Valleys to Cardiff to live out their dreams.

Joining the third series of the show is Jack Watkins, a 24-year-old from Cwmbran.

By day he is a mechanical engineer, but by night he becomes alter ego Austin Vegas, driving women wild.

He says that his favourite outfit is his fireman suit and he claims it gets the ladies’ blood running hot.

He says that being centre of attention is his main priority on a night out and his new role has given him a lot of confidence.

The former Croesyceiliog School pupil is currently living with his mother in the family home in Cwmbran.

Jack knows his fellow cast member Natalee Harris, who is from neighbouring Pontypool, through drinking in the pub where she used to work.

And he thinks there might be some unfinished business there.

I don't think it's jealousy. I think it's just revulsion that people can be propelled to fame and a relatively decent sized pay cheque for doing absolutely nothing other than acting like a bell piece on TV. What is more worrying though is that there is clearly a large market in the UK for such brain rotting rubbish. Broken Britain.

Surely if your prepared to make a **** of yourself and get paid for it, then he knows what he's in for. Leave him to it! As the fame runs out and then bump back in the real world. We will all be tuned in to benefits bettws if it goes ahead. Even if its just pure curiosity. Its all the same thing. Who won big brother last year or the year before oh yeah that's right I cant remember as I didn't really care. As said above don't watch it if you don't want to. Its not like there is only 5 channels these days.

Personally I think jack is a lovely boy, I went to the same school as him for years. Some people are so quick so judge a book by its cover and jump to conclusions. Good on him for having the guts to do this!
