It’s officially crunch time! The team at Chief Productions are working round the clock to put the finishing touches to season one of Weird & Wonderful Hotels.

Walter’s a veritable renaissance man in the entertainment world, having acted in Hollywood blockbusters, TV comedy, Shakespearean stage plays and much more! Of course, we’re desperate to see a demonstration of his more unusual talents, which include animal handling and ballroom dancing! Get that man a sequined jumpsuit and an unruly Labrador pronto!
