He started his TV career at CITV where he presented live shows Sticky and Mashed and was the game show host on the mind twitching Crazy Cottage.
Having made the move over to the BBC, he presented over 200 Xchange live magazine shows. Most memorable of which were the electrical storm that blew up whilst he covered the Commonwealth Games and doing a cookery item with girl group ‘Las Ketchup’, when the three sisters didn’t speak any English (sack the booker).

Jez’s radio career has been spent on BBC Radio 7 holding the fort on youth magazine format The Big Toe Radio Show before jumping seats and presenting CBeebies Radio.
His time there uncovered a new love for narration and in turn opened up the door to character voices for animation. Jez can be heard in the German animated series Chi Ro where he plays ‘CT’ ( a robotic biblical owl who is also a time travelling machine ) I’m sure you agree: no role has ever been more suited!
Jez is delighted to have recently got the role of Cormac the latest train to arrive in Chuggington. Toot! Toot!
