former Strictly contestant and political correspondent John Sergeant is barging around Woodlesford for a new television show.

His latest adventures see him travelling around the country’s waterways by boat - and during that time he made a stop in south Leeds.

And to celebrate his arrival members of Woodlesford in Bloom planted a small perennial flower bed for John.

He rolled up his sleeves to muck in with the planting as well as testing out his strength during an aerobics class on the edge of the lock.

John said: “The Aire and Calder Navigation is one of the most impressive canals in Britain.”

The show will be aired on ITV on Friday, February 17.
