Hebburn not renewed for third series.

Just so everyone knows, the BBC will not be renewing “Hebburn” for a third series. We’ve had such a great time making series 1 and 2 and I’d like to thank the BBC for allowing us to do this. The team that made “Hebburn” were so committed to it and those both in front of and behind the camera were what made “Hebburn” so special. It was such an honour to be able to put my little hometown on TV and to show the country and little bit of tyneside with some of the best actors I could ever have dreamed of. The response from fans all over the world has been overwhelming with “Hebburn” being shown in Australia, Canada, America and all over Europe. But now we have to move on to new projects and I’m looking forward to doing more stuff with the “Hebburn” team as soon as possible!




“Hebburn” wins a Royal Television Society Award!

Very happy to announce that last night we won an RTS award for “Best Drama” at the big awards do up in Newcastle.


It was absolute madness as we were so sure that we hadn’t won, but as they were saying the nice things about the program that had one it dawned on us that it could actually be our show.

The next few hours are a whirlwind of lots of booze and fun, including taking Vic Reeves out for a drinking session in Newcastle with the rest of the Geordies.

Amazing, and thanks to everyone that enjoyed the show and emailed in to tell the BBC.

“HEBBURN” –  BBC2, Thursday October 18th, 10pm.

“Hebburn” Behind the Scenes by Andy Hollingworth.

Well, it’s nearly here!

After a LOT of work, and sitting in a office with white walls and a white desk and nowt else, seven days a week; through rehearsals and script additions; via filming on location in Hebburn and at the Pie Factory film studios in Manchester; add on to that a six week editing process, adding the music and sorting out the credits and titles; it’s ready.

It’s the biggest thing I’ve ever done and probably will ever do, and I hope you all like it.

I’ve tried to show the Hebburn I know, sometimes harsh, always heartwarming and always home.  And of course, better than Jarrow.

There are quite a few “Hebburn Parties” happening up and down the country organised by cast and crew member or just geordies in exile on the night the show goes out, so if you’re having one, send us some pics and we’ll put them somewhere!

Hope you all enjoy it, and keep checking back, might have some giveaways of Hebburn stuff and the latest news about what we are all up to.  There is some VERY exciting stuff in the pipeline!

Also, if you want to catch me live, just click on the “Upcoming Gigs” section of the website. October 4,5 and 6 are going to be particularly fun gigs as not only are they at one of my favourite clubs, the Newcastle Stand, but fellow “Hebburn” cast member Steffen Peddie will also be on. Hopefully see you there.
