Fifteen minutes of TV fame beckoned for Gloucester mayor Chris Chatterton on Wednesday when he appeared on a rugby magazine show.
The mayor was invited to a studio at the Olympic Park in London along with Gloucester Rugby star Charlie Sharples and a group of Cherry and White fans where the Rugby Tonight show, on BT Sport, focused on the Gloucester team.
Mr Chatterton said: “It was incredible to see just how far Gloucester’s support reaches. Even the cameraman was sporting a Gloucester shirt.
“I spoke about the Rugby World Cup coming to the city and how great it is going to be.”
Mr Chatterton recalled on air how the All Blacks came to Gloucester in 1991 for the World Cup.
The visit to the studio was Mr Chatterton’s 849th engagement in his year of office.
