Manchester City and England star Jack Grealish recently promised an interview to a UCFB media student as the two met at Wembley Stadium.

Ellie Killick, who studies BA (Hons) Multimedia Sports Journalism, met with Jack Grealish who took time to speak with Ellie about her UCFB degree.

Ellie said: “One of my friends posted on his social media that Jack was at the stadium filming an advert. We went down to see if he was still there, which he was.

“After a while of waiting, I was approached by a member of his team, Ellen, who asked if I wanted to meet him to which I obviously replied yes. I was taken on set where I waited for Jack to finish filming.

She added: “Jack was lovely and took the time to talk to me.

“I mentioned I’m studying sports journalism and as you can see in the video, he promised I’d be able to interview him one day, so hopefully that happens soon!

“He then asked me to wait a little longer and I was taken to his trailer where he gave me a signed England shirt. The whole thing was an unreal experience, once again he’s showed he has so much time for people.

Speaking about her time so far at university, Ellie said: “I’m about to finish my first year of my degree at UCFB, the past two years have been good.

“Living so close to Wembley, we are exposed to so much like meeting Jack Grealish on a random Friday morning!

“I’ve had lots of work experience over the past two years such as writing for the Daily Mirror, and most recently working with the FA which will hopefully lead to some more work over the summer!

“I’ve also been working on my TikTok which now has grown to over 7,000 following in under a week, absolutely unreal!”

She finished: “An interview with Jack will be a great way to end the year so fingers crossed.”
