Liverpool-born Ted took a degree in English and Drama from Liverpool University and immediately went to Butlins as a redcoat! 

A career in theatre and television has seen him play many parts as well as starring with his sister Kate in Kate and Ted’s Show and presenting quiz and gameshows such as Quiz Night, Bratpack, and Chainletters.

Generally recognised as one of the top TV warm-up studio hosts in the country, Ted has recently been returning to dramatic ways with appearances in Holby City, Merseybeat, Doctors and Brookside and is universally hated as the man who burned down the Phoenix club - Den Perry - in Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights.
