TV presenter, ex pro-footballer and proud Dad
Jeff Brazier is one of the UK’s most loved and in demand TV presenters who has hosted some of the biggest shows on British television.
Jeff is a highly experienced and technically capable presenter equally at home in a live or prerecorded studio environment, on OB, with auto-cue and live direction and is able to put even the most challenging guests at ease as well as a fantastic relationship with his live audiences which all makes for great programming. In August 2011 he was handed the reins of Channel 5’s daily magazine show, OK!TV. He is a regular feature presenter for This Morning including roles such as ‘X Factor’ correspondent, Dancing On Ice correspondent and varying holiday features.
Over the last few years we have seen him as a live OB presenter for the X Factor finals, as a presenter for ITV2’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now in Australia, and as a co-presenter on Sky 1′s Angela and Friends. He also won a lot of new fans when he reached the quarter-finals of this year’s Dancing On Ice competition for ITV1.
As well as presenting, Jeff has been the face of many successful commercial campaigns for the likes of BSkyB/Skyride, McDonald’s Happy Meal Books, Suzuki and Clothes Show Live; to name but a few. He is also a talented writer enjoying a monthly parenting blog with Mamas&Papas and previous weekly work with MSN, a weekly parenting column in the Daily Mirror, a dating column in Now magazine and an agony uncle column in Closer magazine.
Jeff is 33 and lives in Harlow, Essex and was originally a professional footballer, signed to Leyton Orient FC but had to retire after succumbing to injury problems, but he stills plays football and is often involved in charity matches.
He has two young sons, Bobby, and Freddie, and from his experiences of being a single-parent he came up with the programme idea for Superdaddy which was broadcast by Living TV. He has also recently developed and presented a programme for BBC3 My Brother and Me which was broadcast in December 2010 amidst much critical acclaim.
