We trawled through Instagram and Twitter to see if we could find social media profiles for the singing policeman but had no luck. Given Tim’s career, it’s not a surprise that he is slightly off the grid.

Singing policeman takes on Lorraine
Lorraine Kelly was incredibly excited to speak with Tim Jones on her Good Morning Britain segment, as she had previously aired his singing clip on Friday, May 15th.
Lorraine told Tom: “You cheered up the nation, the response you got was remarkable.”
When Tim was asked when he initiated this singing challenge, he said:
To be honest with you it was to cheer myself up. On the 24th of March when it started, I wasn’t in a good place to be honest.
I didn’t think the singing challenge would last but it got to day 11 and then this happened. It all went a bit mental.
WATCH LORRAINE ON GOOD MORNING BRITAIN WEEKDAYS AT 9 AM ON ITV
