Christopher was a big hit with audiences staring in his own one-man show at Edinburgh Festival Late Lunch With Biggins and then returned this year to host The Fringe at Prestonfield  where he entertained with Afternoon Tea with Biggins and hosted the sell out evening shows with many high profile guests.

Christopher won over a huge 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 Branagh; and has been a regular guest as The Narrator in the National Tour of The Rocky Horror Show, he also appeared in the original film where he can be seen doing the Time Warp!   Christopher appeared with Dame Judi Dench and Donald Sinden in The Royal Shakespeare Company’s London Assurance .

Perhaps the best of all is his annual appearance in Panto where over the years he has entertained as the Dame in all the best loved panto around the country wearing his iconic dame costumes and this year is no different whereby he will be entertaining families in Snow White at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton with Diversity – one not to be missed!
