He is the host of Celebs On The Farm (Channel 5), the resident Agony Uncle on Zoe Ball on Saturday/Sunday (ITV), the roving reporter on Do The Right Thing with Eamonn & Ruth (Channel 5) and a series regular on Big Brother’s Bit on the Side (Channel 5). He has even been on Corrie and will be presenting a new series of Takeshi's Castle - we can't wait.

SIMON BRODKIN: See his best pranks here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mG-52vVPKkk
Named “the world’s most famous blagger” by The Daily Telegraph, untameable prankster and acclaimed character comedian Simon Brodkin has hit global headlines multiple times for his high-profile stunts. Most famously he handed Prime Minister Theresa May a P45 form during her keynote speech at the Conservative Party Conference and showered disgraced FIFA president Sepp Blatter with hundreds of dollar bills in bribe payments “for the North Korea 2026 World Cup bid”.
Simon’s additional television and radio credits include appearances on Sunday Night at The Palladium (ITV); The John Bishop Show (BBC One); John Bishop’s Christmas Show (BBC One); Channel 4’s Comedy Gala; Absolutely Fabulous (BBC One); Children In Need (BBC One); Al Murray’s Multiple Personality (ITV1); Comedy Rocks (ITV1); Big Brother’s Big Mouth (Channel 4); The Wall (BBC Three); Edinburgh and Beyond (Comedy Central); and BBC Radio 2’s Out To Lunch. In 2013, Lee Nelson made a highly anticipated return to BBC One’s Let’s Dance for Comic Relief, reaching the final with an impressive hip-hop-ballet performance of Swan Lake! He is the only person to perform in two series of the show, having danced to Club Tropicana the year before, and he also sat on the judging panel in 2012..
MARCEL LUCONT: - flâneur, raconteur, bon-viveur, and easily the greatest UK-based French comedian around. Winner: Chortle Award and Amused Moose Comedy Award. See him on Russel Howard's Good News here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8qA22J0Lro
