Began his career with a local radio station in Bournemouth before joining kid's satellite channel Nickelodeon where he remained for three years. He mainly came to prominence on Reactive, the highly successful but short-lived BBC live interactive game show. His energy and madcap humour was an ideal match for the programme. He then went across to ITV to present Crazy Cottage for one series.
A brief spell on Channel 4's The Big Breakfast in 1996 didn't really work out, even though it looked like a good match on paper. He went on to host a show about paintballing on Bravo.
He has his own production company, called Out to Lunch Productions Ltd.
