For many years I was pleased to be known as one of the county’s top children’s entertainers, both performing and training others. I’ve been entertaining children with magic, ventriloquism and balloon modelling since our latest Royal Parents were children themselves! My act was featured in Andrew Morton’s “A Royal Christmas” for ITV.

For 25 years I was honoured to entertain and act as compere at London’s Mansion House for the annual Lord Mayor’s Children’s Party.

I am a self-confessed “Pantomime Nut” having performed in almost 40 of them! Having played just about all of the panto characters over the years and I’m happiest when cast as half of a double act – whether it be the Brokers men, Captain & mate or ugly sisters!

I have regularly broadcast for BBC Local Radio and I thinks I’ve presented every time slot known to British Radio!

Whilst presenting a late night music and chat programme “The Club” I met Jonathan Vernon-Smith and together we formed an on-air partnership which produced “Ern & Vern” and outrageous comedy show that ran for seven and a half years, much of that time broadcast across the BBC Eastern Region.
