Chris Tarrant

One of the most recognisable faces of UK television, Chris Tarrant hit our screens back in the 70's in Tiswas. Now most reknown as the face of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Chris Tarrant makes an excellent choice for awards ceremonies, and after dinner speeches. 

Chris Tarrant first came to our TV screens in the 1970s with the legendary children’s Saturday morning show ‘TISWAS’. After leaving the kids show, Chris delved into the world of adult games shows, as she hosted the award-winning quiz show ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ from 1998-2014. A global success the format has been bought by over 120 countries worldwide –  and is of course the subject of an Oscar-winning film – Slumdog Millionaire.

Apart from quiz shows, other TV projects have included a trip to the Arctic Circle to film Polar Bears for ITV1 and a visit to Sierra Leone to film for Save The Children.  He has also filmed Extreme Railways and a variety of other programmes. 

Great! He worked the room very well, Great host, good energy and he was good enough to have the odd picture taken.

On Radio, Chris was a legend in his own breakfast time, he presented his No. 1 Breakfast Show on 95.8 Capital FM for 17 years.  He won numerous awards and accolades along the way, including the Radio Academy’s ‘Outstanding Contribution to Music Radio’ Award. He hung up his Breakfast Show headphones for the last time in 2004.

Away from the cameras and microphones, Chris is patron of numerous charities and, in 2005, was presented with an OBE for his services to charity and to broadcasting. Chris also writes anything from fishing articles and travel pieces to books, including Tarrant Off the Record, Millionaire Moments and Tarrant on Top of the World.
