The boy from Bolton first tasted fame when he was spotted by a model scout from Select at the BBC’s Clothes Show Live. He began a successful modelling career but it was not long before he was picked out for stardom by Channel 4 when he won ‘Model of the Week’ on The Big Breakfast.
In 2000 Vernon landed a regular gig on Channel 4’s T4. This proved to be the perfect vehicle to show off his humour and warmth as a presenter. Vernon was with T4 until 2006 and during that time his love of music shone through as he became a presenter for BBC2’s Top of the Pops Plus, and the spin off series Top of the Pops @ Play for Play UK.

Vernon joined Radio 1 in 2006 & has been a regular on the station ever since hosting his regular Saturday show.

In 2007 Vernon hosted a variety of shows for both BBC1 and ITV1 – he started the year by co-hosting Just the Two of Us with his wife, Tess Daly. He then fronted the ITV1 hit show Vernon Kay’s Gameshow Marathon, and as a massive Elvis fan, he jumped at the chance to spend a summer travelling the globe attempting to find The World’s Greatest Elvis for BBC1.

In 2007 he signed an exclusive contract with ITV to host a number of shows for them and over the last 3 years has hosted Beat the Star, The Whole 19 Yards and a number of series of the ever popular Family Fortunes.

In 2010 he got the chance of a lifetime when he was asked to host Million Dollar Mind Game for the US Network ABC.

Vernon married presenter Tess Daly in 2003, and they have two daughters - Phoebe and Amber.
