IF YOU ARE SEEKING A MEMBER OF 'THE BEAUTIFUL LOOKING PEOPLES CLUB' BEFORE CONSIDERING TALENT, MY ADVICE IS,...MOVE ON!! IF YOU ARE STILL HERE, I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE SITE
My journey through radio & TV has been a very special one indeed. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that my first disco equipment, purchased by my parents for my 12th Birthday, would lead me along the path I tread today. However, I dared to dream of what could be. I owe a great debt of thanks to Lorraine Kelly & the viewers of LK Today, who gave me my first break into TV back in July 2000. They voted for me in tens of thousands as the new face they would most like to see on their screens.
Of course I was shocked at the result and overwhelming winning margin of 69% of 1.9 million votes cast. In addition, I knew that TV was driven by how a person looks, so conceded that I would surely come last! 4th would have been a wonderful achievement given that over 7 thousand people applied for the position. So a huge thank-you to the wonderful British public for voting for me in droves. Believe me, when I feel down or begin to doubt myself in any way, I just remember their support and it makes my heart fly and gives me the boost I need to never consider giving up the dream.
I have been very fortunate to meet some amazing people who work both in front and behind the camera lens. Sadly, it's difficult to stay in touch with everyone that I have met but they have made an impact on me for sure. (You know who you are.) Big-love to you all. To my fans and supporters, I say ´a huge thanks´. And to remind them that I´m as determined as ever to break through the big corporation´s prejudice towards a person´s size, age and looks. ´Rope the moon´.
I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who watched Cowboy Trap on BBC1.
You made it a big hit.
I hope to maintain your support in the future.

Cowboy Trap and his love of football
Would love to think I could call this knight of the realm a friend. However, I wouldn´t dare!
I met him for the first time when he granted me an interview with him when I was a cub reporter for a very small radio station back in 1994.

The Big Show
One of the highlights of my career was being invited by Steve to be a guest on his big show,'Steve Wright in the afternoon' on BBC radio2, It's an ambition I've had for years as I have grown up listening to Steve and have always admired his talents. For me, he's one of the best radio Jox on the Planet!
It was an enormous priviledge and I had lots of fun too. It was lovely to meet Tim too, a top bloke. Cheers Steve and I can't wait to be invited back soon.
This boy is a real talent and a great friend.
What he doesn´t know about horticulture and garden design just isn´t worth knowing! A great presenter and live entertainer, can be seen regularly on ITV1 ´This Morning Show´ as the gardening expert and a gold medal award winner at that. Must also give a big shout out to his brother Neil, who is an all round top bloke too. I love working with these guys and hope to do so for many years to come.
