Managing Director, Crackit Productions, Elaine Hackett, said: “Jon is a genius at making programmes with a heart, with integrity and with a purpose that makes viewers feel good. He’s fastidious and executes brilliantly.  He’s got a heavy weight intellect and a popular, heart-warming soul. 

“Commissioners love him because he’s creative and a rock-solid showrunner. 
He’s also extremely entertaining and fun to have around.  I’ve been hunting for a heavyweight to join Crackit for 18 months and am genuinely delighted that he’s joining us.”
