Leona Sinama-Pongolle returns to our screens playing Alisha in the critically acclaimed, multiple award-winning children’s football drama Jamie Johnson as it returns to CBBC for an explosive sixth series. The first of 13 x 30-minute episodes will air on CBBC on Monday 25th October at 5pm. Following the weekly TX, the new ‘Jamie Johnson’ episodes will be available on demand on BBC iPlayer, alongside all the episodes from the previous five series.
Inspired by the books of Dan Freedman, the series ‘Jamie Johnson’ is about 15-year-old Jamie (Louis Dunn) and his friends who live and breathe football. Becoming a footballer is an impossible dream, but that won’t stop Jamie and his friends as they follow their hearts, make mistakes… and score some absolute screamers.
