This month we launch our ‘Twilight Hour’ series where we share a drink with people we admire. This month it’s Pimm’s ambassador, actor and man about Chelsea, Ollie Locke.
Ollie I hear you’ve got an exciting summer lined up: I’ve got some very exciting plans… this week alone I’m going to Downing Street to meet Theresa May for a Pride drinks party, Wimbledon with Pimm’s on Thursday, Henley on Friday and Saturday is Pride itself. I’ll have a rest on Sunday I think!
And we hear that it’s not just Twilight Trees that has teamed up with Pimm’s this summer? I couldn’t be happier to be a Pimm’s ambassador this year, I get to be involved in some lovely wonderful British events that people adore so much and with a brand that couldn’t be more eccentric, British and obviously delicious!
How would you make the perfect Pimms? Watch my video on how to pour the Perfect Serve!
Twilight Trees are on tour with the teapot this summer. As a big fan of both brands what do you think about this? I have always loved Twilight Trees they honestly bring such a special look to any party or event, many of my friends have had them at their weddings and they are so beautiful, no doubt they will be at mine too. I have a feeling your collaboration will look a bit like my wedding!
And at the end of this summer I hear you might be hitting the big screen, can you tell us more? Yes, I moved away from Made In Chelsea and have gone back into acting. After my role on ITV2’s Plebs, I got offered a Hollywood film role alongside Steve Coogan, Isla Fisher and Stephen Fry, it’s called Greed and it will be out at the end of the summer.
Right it’s very much Pimm’s O’clock so thank you so much Ollie, let’s get pouring!
