It’s a good job St Helens student Stephen Greenall has a head for heights.
The 19-year-old aviation student jetted off to Canada to sample a day in the life of a skyscraper window cleaner after he was picked to star in the BBC3 show World’s Toughest Jobs.
Stephen, from Haydock, is set to appear in the episode at 9pm next Tuesday (March 10).
He said: “Travel is in my blood. I studied it for three years, I’ve done voluntary work in South America and wanted to do more.
“The World’s Toughest Jobs seemed perfect so I was delighted when I got the call saying ‘come down to London, we want to see you in person’.
“Then they told me I was going to Toronto as a skyscraper window cleaner. I was shocked, excited, nervous and speechless!”
Each episode of World’s Toughest Jobs follows the journey of three hard-up young Brits as they leave the UK in a bid to find their pot of gold and take on one of the world’s toughest jobs.
Stephen, a student at Warrington Collegiate, met up with Dom and Darci, his two co-stars in Canada and, after intensive training, lots of practice and plenty of health and safety checks, the job began.
He said: “When I was working up so high I felt like I could see the whole world. It was absolutely breathtaking.
“As you climb up the ladders you open this little door and all you see is blue sky. The sun feels amazingly close. It just leaves you speechless.”
