I'm sure he has a job centre nearby which he could pay a visit too. It's what most people would have to do if they were suddenly a bit down on their luck in their chosen profession.
But those jobs wouldn't be as well paid as the stuff he's doing!

Thank You!!!

Every time I see him on the tv, I am like HOW??!! does this guy get tv work. He really is not easy on the eye, and he seems so disingenuine and is extremely dull. Surely there are better looking guys with a personality who could do this job better?! He makes me switch over every time I see him!
I feel the same about the talent vacuum that is Brian Dowling

Seeing Ryan Moloney on CBB, I feel worried for the actors playing Karl and Susan, as this is probably the work they'll get in the near future since they'll hardly get work on shows in the US or on home-grown ones like Hebburn or Silent Witness. They're all going to end up like Joe Swash.

How Alan and Jackie probably wished they'd done a Chris Eccleston and quit Neighbours before suffering typecasting, because all poor Jackie Woodburne's going to get outside the show is Celebs Go Mad in Ayia Napa or Celebrity Hairdressing with the likes of Lisa Maffia, Jane McDonald, Lisa Maxwell, Rowetta Satchell, Tamara Beckwith and the drummer from the Script- she's hardly going to get on James Bond or have the roles like Katherine Kelly,Eccleston. Neil Grainger and Suranne Jones have managed.

What a sad comedown for her if that happened.

He is like a male Stacey Solomon! So irritating. Needs to be shot out of a cannon.

Maybe he's a really nice guy to the backstage staff and is easy to work with.

As for Alan and Jackie from Neighbours I think they will be ok if they stay in Oz and I doubt would be doing that much reality TV. They will get parts in Aussie drama shows without much difficulty.

They would probably get bit-parts in something like Underbelly or on the ABC, but I'm referring to long-term success outside Neighbours when the axe eventually falls on them/the show, and I think Jackie would want something like James Bond than bit-parts in Aussie dramas.

Their main fanbase is the UK, due to Neighbours being popular in the UK than Australia. Because they've stuck with Neighbours for so long and haven't spread themselves out like Chris Eccleston has done (after Cracker and Dr Who,which he left both shows to avoid typecasting), the only work they have to fall on in the UK is reality TV with ex-So Solid Crew/Happy Monday members/It girls and the likes of the drummer from the Script and Jodie Marsh, which is saddening for both actors if they are reduced to this.

They'll never have a role on Silent Witness, Bond or CSI.

So? When times are hard you make sacrifices and I bloomin' wish he would.

He seems to get everywhere, actually lost count of all the things he's been a panel member of or introduced etc.

Been on more things than anyone else I can think of. Sort of like how seemingly every other dog in a show or advert is a jack russell.

Must be really cheap since he has nothing else really going for him.

Usually introduced as "ex-eastender" except he hasn't been in EE for years.

The '99p Stores' version of Graham Norton

I really can't stand Dowling, he's just so talentless and annoying, he'd disappear totally if these tacky reality shows were axed

Hopefully they've been sensible with their money and they won't need to work again if they don't want to.

Of course if they do need money Panto pays well and gives them a free trip to the UK.

Look at a person such as Jane Rossington who was in Crossroads for nearly 30 years, she hasn't had much TV work since but is still financially comfortable.

Oh and as for Joe Swash I agree entirely, total personality vacuum.

All he gets is panto and crap reality TV. It's not as if the RSC and the National are fighting over him, is it?

He's as far from photogenic as you can get (very shallow, but important if you are on telly whether we like it or not), has one of the most annoying voices in the world, as is yet another irritating "cheeky choppy" type who aren't exactly in short supply.

I just saw a trailer for that new Fake Reaction show and it looks like yet more unwatchable "reality" rubbish but the choice of Joe Swash as the "face" of it baffles me beyond belief.

I can't get over him winning I'm A Celeb. A nice guy he might be (I assume people found likableable to keep him in that show) but it should take more than that for someone to be able to get a TV career. He always looks like he needs a shower.
Its Simples...He does it for the `Minimum Wage` plus his bus fare
