Can't Cook, Won't Cook

Family Cook Off (judge)

Ready Steady Cook

Strictly Come Dancing (participant)


London-born chef turned entertainer turned chef again. Achieved some minor fame as half of the all singing, all dancing comedy act the Calypso Twins. A former head chef at Lord's Cricket Ground, he has presented hod loads of different cookery shows on the BBC, which qualified him to take over the reins of Ready Steady Cook upon the departure of Fern Britton. He is now said to be worth zillions of pounds thanks to his successful range of books and cookery products.


He used to be a ball-boy at Wimbledon.

Probably due to his height (he's 6'4") he played the Gelf Chief in an episode of Red Dwarf. Strange but true!

He was a celebrity patron of National Doughnut Week 2007 (a fund-raising event for The Children's Trust).
