From Porridge to I’m A Celebrity, Christopher Biggins has graced our screens for over thirty years. This multi talented actor, humourist, writer and general raconteur counts the worlds most glamorous stars as his best friends and brings his own inimitable sense of humour and warmth to any production.
Most recently, he was a regular panelist on BBC2’s Debatable, was a special guest on ITV1’s Live at The Palladium, won thousands for charity on DAVE’s Celebrity Storage Hunters and voiced Channel 5 panel show It’s Not Me, It’s You.
Christopher won over a whole new audience when he was crowned King Of The Jungle after winning series 7 of the hit ITV1 show, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here but his career began many years earlier.
He started his training at Salisbury Repertory Theatre and later at Bristol Old Vic as a prelude to his first West End appearance – creating the role of Head Jumbly in The Owl and The Pussycat Went to Sea. Christopher has also taken part in a successful run of The Play What I Wrote; directed by Kenneth Brannagh; and is a regular guest as The Narrator in the National Tour of The Rocky Horror Show. Christopher has also managed to fit in a year with The Royal Shakespeare Company appearing in London Assurance with Judi Dench and Donald Sinden. Other theatre work includes a National tour of Side by Side BY Sondheim, Beyond The Fringe, A Touch of Spring and more recently Cluedo and On Approval. In the summer of 1990 Christopher played and sang the role of Herod in Jesus Christ Superstar at London’s Barbican Theatre.
