The British actor in Queenstown for a new TV show

British actor Vinnie Jones has landed in Queenstown to film his latest television project.

The actor and former footballer posted a video of himself at Glenorchy on Saturday morning, alongside a number of cast and crew for the new TV show.

“Right here in New Zealand, to start a new show,” he said in the short video.

“We’re going upstairs, just over there”, the Lock, reserve and two smoking barrels the actor added, pointing to a large mountain range in the background.

“The choppers take the film crew up there now, the cameras, then they come back for us,” he added, addressing the camera, as the sun rose behind him.

“A little chilly, half past seven on a Saturday morning. Happy days,” he added, before panning to show the incredible sunrise over the mountains of Queenstown.

The actor is rumored to be in the country to film an outdoor reality show that will see the contestants being chased through the countryside by members of the SAS.

Last year, Discovery commissioned a show called Monitoring which will see teams of two from around the world race through epic and challenging New Zealand landscapes to reach the evacuation zone and the helicopter, before being caught by a group of elite trackers.

Jones appears to have been in New Zealand for a few days and has been spending time exploring the continent.

On Friday, tour guide company Out There Southern Adventures posted a photo featuring Jones after the actor was taken to do “stuff there.”

Jones is an actor, presenter and former professional footballer, best known for his roles in Snatch, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and X-Men: The Last Standamong other movies.
