Ryan Hand

An Irish Presenter, Comedian and DJ in London

A presenter, comedian, actor and DJ, Ryan is jack of all trades and (you know the rest)

Hand has recently made a big splash onto Saturday night TV on ITV's new primetime entertainment show Cannonball, presenting alongside Freddie Flintoff, Frankie Bridge, Maya Jama and Radzi Chinyanganya,

The Irishman is known for his quick wit, charm and cheeky persona and spent 2016 & 2017 warming up the audiences on ITV's Loose Women joking with the likes of Ruth Langsford, Coleen Nolan and Katie Price.

Starting off as a runner with BBC Northern Ireland Ryan quickly landed his first live TV presenting gig on the BBC's Red Button. Having caught the presenting bug he left the BBC several years later, a producer and journalist, to purse his dreams of being on the other side of the camera

Since then Ryan has presented for ITV’s The Magazine, BBC Radio Ulster, Q Radio, National Lottery and has appeared on shows such as Come Dine With Me and Strip Date.

No stranger to big stages Hand once entertained an audience of 10, 000 people at the Tall Ships Festival. He's performed comedy across the UK and Ireland in clubs such as The Comedy Store (London) The Stand (Glasgow) and has performed in Australia and New Zealand.

Ryan has ventured into the world of acting and recently appeared on The Fall (BBC) and Bodyfixers (E4). He was a regular sketch actor for The Sun Bets comedy videos and we can't forget about his cameo in a Road Safety Advert. Hard to believe he's still Oscar-less.

Whether it’s hosting Belfast Fashion Week or interviewing Olympic Gold Medallist Greg Rutherford on the red carpet at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards, you're guaranteed fun, energy and humour with Ryan.

Is It 'OK' For Men To Wear Face Masks And Pedicure?

This year I've worn dozens of facemasks, had several spray tans and a couple of cheeky pedicures too. On occasion I've sat in the bath eating pizza surrounded by candles watching Mrs Doubtfire and Bridesmaids.
