Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust Ambassador PC Mick Amos will be featuring in Coronation Streets 50th anniversary episodes as a supporting artist.
Mick will be on our screens from Monday 6th December until 10th December including the well documented live episode. He will be rehearsing from this Saturday up until the big day on Thursday 9th December. The plot features around a tram crash which rocks Weatherfield and will change the nation’s favourite street forever. Mick will be seen as a supporting artist Police Officer throughout the week.
Mick said “It’s great to be involved in history even if it is in a small way. I have already filmed 8 night shifts around the tram crash and can honestly say the experience was great. I worked alongside the majority of the cast and shared banter with Tyrone a Tigers fan due to his partner Lucy Jo Hudson’s brother playing for Castleford”
Asked if Mick would like to continue his work on the street he replied “ I love being a Youth and School Police Officer and working alongside the Wildcats as a Community liaison officer and ambassador. I’m passionate about the Wakefield district and love the Wildcats. So if I could continue to work on the Street as a regular bobby creating links and use that to my advantage in my day to day role it would be great. I am hoping to continue to feature on the programme with my ultimate aim to be sat off duty in the Rovers return in my Wildcats shirt!!”
Mick is currently working alongside Davide Longo, Wildcats Community Trust Manager, in a project that will honour one of the districts true sporting greats Neil Fox.
He said ” I am grateful Davide asked me to be part of the committee and passionate about the project which will be great for Neil, the Wildcats and heritage in the District”.
Wildcats Community Trust Manager Davide Longo added “Mick is very passionate about his work, the supporting role within the nation’s favourite soap will enhance his reputation across Wakefield. We are thankful for the work he does, especially with the Wildcats and schools across the district”
