Violet’s Pint-Pulling Prowess

Jenny Platt (our Violet Wilson) knows a thing or two about pulling pints – because she worked in Wetherspoon’s The Tally Ho pub in North Finchley, north London, for three months.
She told the Daily Mirror: “I worked at a Wetherspoon pub for a few months between acting jobs.
“I learned how to pull a brilliant pint and I really enjoyed it. I’m actually a pretty good barmaid and it was good fun – little did I know just how soon it would come in handy for my acting.
“When I first came on set as Violet, everyone was really surprised at how well I could pull a pint.
“But when I first started in the real pub I was a right mess – it’s a lot harder than it looks.
“I’m sure that customers at The Tally Ho will get a shock when they turn on the TV and see me behind the bar in the Rovers.”
