Reggie Yates is one of the most talented and versatile presenters on British TV. His credits include The Voice and Christmas Top of the Pops on BBC1.

Reggie’s TV career began at the tender age of eight when he appeared in the hugely popular comedy, Desmonds. The offers were soon rolling in, including a stint as a footballer on A Bit of Fry & Laurie; the Channel Five Soap, Family Affairs; The Bill, and eventually Grange Hill called – and Reggie had made it!

Reggie’s next move was to Diggit, where he first worked with Fearne Cotton 1998. His potential spotted by the BBC, and Reggie was recruited to the hosting trio on the Sunday morning kids show, Smile.

Reggie’s love of music led him to the BBC’s Black music station, 1Xtra at the age of 18, where he hosted his own show for two years.

Reggie’s presenting jobs just kept on coming….he took free kicks with David Beckham in Madrid for Beckham’s Hot Shots, braved the jungles of Brazil in Escape from Scorpion Island, and toured the States in the hit show, Only in America. He also co-devised and starred in comedy, The Crust, and drama, UGetMe, and fronted the Saturday morning programme, Mighty Truck of Stuff.

It was Top of the Pops that thrust Reggie on to primetime TV, and Reggie played the part of Leo in the 2007 series of Doctor Who.

Reggie then moved to Radio 1, where he was reunited with Fearne Cotton for the Weekend Breakfast show before heading to the afternoon slot with both the Request Show and the Chart Show.

2009 was a major year for Reggie, as he helped teenagers across the country with his light hearted take on life coaching with The Almost Perfect Guide to Life for BBC2, found a new home at MTV hosting specials on Eminem, Jay-Z and Whitney Houston, and hosted all the major music festivals in the UK for BBC 3.

That was also the year that, for the first time in its history, the MOBOs left London to hold their annual award show in Glasgow, and Reggie presided over the event which included a touching tribute to the late Michael Jackson from his family, Jermaine and LaToya. His stellar performance led to him being offered the chance to host BBC3’s week long dance competition, Move Like Michael Jackson in December 2009.

Determined to keep his feet in acting, Reggie starred in the eight part ITV2 drama, Trinity, and appeared in his first feature film, teen slasher movie Demons Never Die alongside Robert Sheehan & Tulisa Constostavlos.

In 2010 Reggie visited the slums of Kibera, Kenya for a life changing experience with Comic Relief. The moving two part films ‘Famous Rich and in the Slums’ were broadcast on BBC1 to much acclaim. He also fronted a leading BBC3 show Autistic Superstars for which he received a prestigious RTS nomination.

In 2012 Reggie hosted BBC’s The Voice UK with Holly Willoughby.
