Chris Tarrant Biography

Chris Tarrant first came to our TV screens in the seventies with the legendary anarchic Saturday morning show ‘TISWAS’ - Saturday was TISWAS day!  These days he is still enjoying phenomenal success with his award-winning quiz show ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’, with more live shows planned for 2012. The show’s format has been bought by over 120 countries worldwide - and is of course the subject of an Oscar-winning film!

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 last year to film for Save The Children.  He is currently filming a new series of ‘Extreme Railways’ for Channel 5.

On Radio, Chris was a legend in his own breakfast time - the man Londoners most wanted to get out of bed with each morning as he presented his No. 1 Breakfast...

On Radio, Chris was a legend in his own breakfast time - the man Londoners most wanted to get out of bed with each morning as he presented his No. 1 Breakfast Show on 95.8 Capital FM for 17 years.  He regularly attracted a weekly audience of over two million listeners - that’s a million more than any other breakfast radio DJ! 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, although he can still be heard standing in for Steve Wright on Radio 2.

Away from the cameras and microphones, Chris is patron of numerous charities and, in 2005, was presented with an OBE by HM The Queen for his services to charity and to broadcasting.  In his spare time (when he’s not fishing !), Chris loves to write – anything from fishing articles and travel pieces to books, including Tarrant Off the Record, Millionaire Moments and Tarrant on Top of the World.

Chris keeps saying “I really must slow down a bit next year” ... but then he’s been saying that for years!
