Sam and Mark | NMP Live

Double BAFTA winning presenters Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes first appeared on our screens as contestants in Pop Idol in 2003. Their friendship began whilst filming backstage and they have been inseparable ever since.

In 2009, Broadcast Magazine ranked them “Number One Rated Children’s TV Presenters” for Who Wants To Be A Superhero? having previously been nominated for a Children’s BAFTA for Level Up.

Best-known for presenting Sam & Mark’s Big Friday Wind Up (CBBC) for which they received a Children’s BAFTA in 2013 and 2015, Sam & Mark present a weekly radio show which broadcasts live every Sunday on Free Radio across the West Midlands.

Other credits include Sam & Mark’s Sport Showdown, (CBBC), Top Of The Pops Reloaded, TMi, the family quiz show Copycats, Skate Nation, Jump Nation, The Great Christmas Toy Giveaway (Channel 5) and Sport Relief Does Glee Club (CBBC/BBC) which won Best Children’s Programme at the BAFTA Scotland Awards.

In addition to guest appearances on Big Brother’s Little Brother, The Xtra Factor, Pressure Pad, Ultimate Brain, My Dog Ate My Homework, Celebrity Juice and This Morning, Sam & Mark were contestants on Celebrity Total Wipeout, Let’s Dance For Sport Relief and Dancing On Ice and headlined the Lollibop Festival 2014 to crowds of up to 20,000.

Sam & Mark are heavily involved with various charities. They have raised thousands of pounds, and just as importantly, awareness for Whizz-Kidz, a charity that Mark in particular has a personal connection with. The duo were delighted to become the first official patrons of the charity.

They have recently published two children’s books for Scholastic entitled The Adventures of Long Arm and Long Arm vs The Evil Supply Teacher.
