Watch live video from ControlJoe on www.twitch.tv

Joe Lovett is taking to the streets as a virtual ‘Sim’ for a day (no Plumbob in sight) in an effort to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and all the action is to be streamed via Twitch.

Lovett will be walking around the streets of Lincoln, Lincolnshire from midday until 10pm on Monday, February 2nd with a GoPro strapped to his head. Viewers can control Joe’s “Twitch Does Reality” stream and give him instructions via the Twitch chat and tipping a minimum donation of £1 — the action can also be followed via the #ControlJoe hashtag on Twitter.
