He broke 4 world records, completed 3 life threatening tasks and fulfilled a lifetime ambition of flying with the Red Arrows. He visited 32 countries taking on the most extreme and obscure challenges, his biggest moment being when he became the first ever civilian to finish the UK Royal Marine Commando 30 mile Yomp.
Gethin has presented a variety of high-profile shows including 71 Degrees North andBBC1’s Remembrance, which was filmed in the heart of the Green Zone in Afghanistan.
In 2010 Gethin took part in 'Soccer Aid' for ITV1 playing for the Rest of The World Team, but his passion is for Rugby, and he is a self-confessed rugby geek. Not only has he presented a number of rugby shows, he has even taken his knowledge to Celebrity Mastermind.
