Parish council video star Jackie Weaver eager for another Zoom showdown — on Question Time

INTERNET star Jackie Weaver is eager for another Zoom showdown — on Question Time.

The 62-year-old went viral for her calm handling of an unruly parish council meeting — in clips now seen by more than four million people.


Bookies are giving odds of 10-1 for her to be on Strictly Come Dancing.

But yesterday she told the Sun on Sunday she would prefer BBC’s QT.

She said: “If I was asked, why not? I think I’d do a lot better than I would on Strictly.”

In the video, Jackie, from Whitchurch, Shrops, stands firm as Handforth parish councillors shout at each other, telling her she has “no authority”.

Despite the worldwide attention it has created the mother-of-three says only one of her sons has actually watched it.

She added: “He said seeing my reaction to the men shouting like that reminded him a little bit of the way I handled tantrums when he was a little boy.

“But we were never strict parents growing up – we didn’t have to be.

“I’ve not heard from my other two sons yet. But I am sure they will watch it eventually.

“I hope one good thing to come from this is that people will see it is no way to behave.”
