He currently presents CBBC’s RTS nominated Marrying Mum and Dad, as well as his 3 times BAFTA nominated comedy travelogue show All Over the Place, which are now on their fifth and seventh series respectively.

He was a member of the National Youth Theatre throughout the 1990s and went on to study Drama at Goldsmiths College in London.
