As far as I'm concerned, Jimmy was highly underrated. Former acrobat, and a lovely guy.

What do you want to know about him? I was just a young girl when i worked with him! But he taught me so much. It was an experience never to be forgotten stepping into the ring behind him.

Hi I was jimmy Scott's niece, he was married to my dads sister, they were a theatrical family and my aunt joined him in the circus and worked with him in all the famous circuses, when he was younger he was a tumbling clown and won a gold medal in the world circus championships. His grandson Jamie later worked with him in the ring
