Today’s Joanna Page: Adrenaline Junkie

Joanna Page - adrenaline junkie

Our Joanna is currently off in Wales filming the third series of Gavin & Stacey. But a little while ago, I mentioned she was in Dubai, filming Jack Osbourne’s Adrenaline Junkie. Turns out, all that navy fun in Making Waves stood her in good stead for some powerboat racing.

“Joanna couldn’t wait to get in, she was jumping up and down. Reggie didn’t like water but he was really good and just said ‘I’m getting in’. Jack and Jesse went back to the hotel. We thought it was really strange – adrenaline junkie or not?!”

But the next day, the boys decided to go ahead with the race.

Sarah said: “Joanna was buzzing and I think she went back to the hotel and told them how amazing it was. Then they were under pressure because if a girl could do it, then they should be able to do it. It wasn’t very adrenaline junkie. Joanna is a true adrenaline junkie.”
