JJ Chalmers on Money for Nothing
In 2021, it was announced that JJ Chalmers would become a part of the presenting team on BBC’s Money for Nothing.
Joining Sarah Moore and Jacqui Joseph, JJ is putting his TV presenting skills to good use on the show. As per his BBC bio, he’s presented “ceremonial events for the BBC, hosting specials such as Trooping the Colour, The Lord Mayor’s Show and D Day 75.“
JJ joined the show for series 10. Series 11, which launched on October 11th, 2021, is JJ’s second series presenting Money for Nothing.
The BBC also wrote that “JJ is a DIY whizz” and that he’s renovated three houses in his time. So, it makes sense for the former marine to be presenting Money for Nothing!
