About Jonathan

Jonathan Ross began his media career as a researcher on the Channel 4 chat show Loose Talk. Various other documentaries and shows followed before he began working on Soul Train. It was whilst working on the show that he met researcher Alan Marke and the pair came up with the idea of The Last Resort and their own production company

In 1987 Channel X was born. Finding themselves short of a satisfactory host Jonathan stepped in, literally as 'the last resort', and made his television presenting debut in January 1987. The show was a hit and broke the mould of the traditional TV chat show in this country; as a result, Channel 4 commissioned a total of four series.

Jonathan Ross's radio career began in 1987 when he filled in for Janice Long on Radio 1 for two weeks. He then went on to host a flagship show on Richard Branson's first radio station, Radio (the fore-runner to Virgin Radio) in 1988. Jonathan was also a regular contributor on Radio 4's Loose Ends from 1987 to 1989. In 1998 he teamed up with Chris Evans to host a flagship show for the new-look Virgin Radio, The Jonathan Ross Show.

Jonathan's prolific television career as a presenter has included: The Incredibly Strange Film Show (1988-1989); One Hour with Jonathan Ross (1990); For One Week Only (1991); Tonight With Jonathan Ross; Saturday Zoo; Gag Tag (with Frank Skinner); Mondo Rosso; The Late Jonathan Ross (1996); In Search Of...; The Big Big Talent Show. In 1991 and subsequent years Jonathan has compered the British Comedy Awards.

In 1999 Jonathan Ross became Barry Norman's successor to the BBC One flagship film show. He now hosts his own chat show on BBC1 and the game show It's Only TV... But I Like It.

In May 2003 Jonathan picked up two Sony Awards for his work in the radio industry. He won best entertainment presenter and the special 2002 award for achievements over the year.

"Jonathan Ross filled our night with his own style of inimitable glamour and is the past-master at walking the fine line between off-the cuff hilarity and consistent professionalism, always responding so well to mood of the audience. I lost count of the number of clients who informed me after the awards, how brilliant Jonathan was. In our opinion he simply is the best presenter out there"
