About

Vernon Kay first burst onto our TV screens on T4 in 2000 and has been a permanent feature ever since.

Hailing from Bolton, Vernon's first taste of fame came 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 (10-1pm),

Vernon whilst presenting Hit Me Baby One More Time for ITV1, such was its success the major US network NBC asked Vernon to host the US version of the show. Other shows that Vernon has hosted include: Boys and Girls (Ch4); Celebrities Under Pressure (ITV1); FBI (BBC); T in the Park (Ch4); The Grill (Ch 4); Wife for William (E4); Head Jam (BBC2)

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

In 2007, he signed an exclusive contract with ITV to host a number of shows for them and 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 Kay is married to former model and TV presenter Tess Daly.
