The diehard duo then promptly wowed producers at Aviva with their dedication after being filmed during Gloucester Rugby's game with London Wasps on 1 November. The pair then got the call to represent their club in a new series of adverts on ITV and ITV4 which wrap around the Aviva Premiership Rugby highlights show.
Two of Gloucester's biggest fans, they ride to each game at Kingsholm on their very own cherry and white tandem bike - which served as their carriage for their wedding in March 2012.
And Jo, who is a teacher at Kingsholm Primary School, has a specially-designed 'Shed' in her classroom in tribute to her club's famous terrace.
Although she enjoyed her star turn, Jo is not planning to write any more poems or to make any more appearances in front of the camera just yet.
"To apply to be a passionate fan for the Aviva competition you had to say why you were so dedicated," said Jo, 43. "I thought of a poem about 4 o'clock in the morning which started along the lines of 'We have a bike, in Cherry & White'. I talked about how our bike was integral to our wedding and how passionate we are about Kingsholm.
"I did fall down the stairs trying to find some paper and pen to write it down. I've been in a pantomime recently and after this that was about as far-flung as I want to go into the limelight.
"Gloucester Rugby matters to me because it's the heart of the city, it helps lots of people that have not been brought up here recognise the importance of the community and that's perhaps what sets it apart."
Complete with tandem, the filming for the adverts took place at their beloved Kingsholm on 7 December. And Neal, 46, admits being a TV star is hard work - though does not expect to be stopped on the streets of Gloucester for his autograph.
"I didn't realise there was quite so much to it to be honest," said Neal, a business development manager. "I thought we'd come down, ride the bike around, take a few shots, say 'thanks very much' and off we go.
"And I'm amazed that three or four hours of filming can produce 25 seconds, but I feel like I've done Gloucester proud, I wouldn't wear make-up for anybody else.
"It's a large part of our life and it's very miserable if we lose - I don't get spoken to on a Saturday evening. I think we'll manage with the fame, signatures aren't really my thing but who knows, it might take place."
"What we're trying to do is really get to the heart of what matters to rugby fans from the 12 Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs," said Louisa Cheetham, Senior Sponsorship Manager at Aviva.
"I think what's been absolutely fantastic is we've seen the passion of all the fans, from an 82-year-old Leicester Tigers supporter to a pair of eight-year-olds who love Exeter Chiefs.
"And I think it's absolutely testament to how wonderfully supportive the fans are. They are ultimately at the heart of everything we're doing with rugby making it the great game that it is."
