Synopsis

This is Colin's story about becoming an adult at 35 years of age. From a strictly time-tabled athletics lifestyle from the age of 17, suddenly, after retiring from his sporting career, he had to grow up very quickly. Having created a name for himself on a world stage, now he has to create a life in reality. Colin talks about the glamour of "Strictly Come Dancing" and the emotional journey of "Who Do You Think You Are?" that took him back to his ancestors' roots in Panama and the Caribbean plus his motivational work with young children.

COLIN JACKSON Without a doubt one of the greatest athletes that Great Britain has ever produced, Colin Jackson, who still holds the Indoor world record for the 60m hurdles, called time on his outstanding athletics career in front of an adoring home crowd at the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham in 2003. After more than a decade spent at the very pinnacle of his sport, it was a fitting end to a glittering career. Colin is one of the most respected and loved of all British sports stars and his down to earth, approachable manner has endeared him to public and media alike. Since his retirement Colin has firmly established his place as a key broadcasting figure on and off the screen both in and outside sport as well as becoming one of the top sports speakers on the circuit.
