DJ and Presenter

Spoony started his radio career on leading pirate radio station, London Underground, in the mid nineties, and eventually moved to BBC Radio 1 in 2001, where he presented a weekend breakfast show. He decided to leave Radio 1 in 2006 to concentrate on his work on the BBC Radio Five Live football phone-in show 6-0-6. He is also known as a club DJ and has remixed tracks for artists including All Saints and Faith Evans.

Competing in the fourth series of Strictly Come Dancing, Spoony was partnered with Ola Jordan. A good start in week one with a fun, cheeky Cha Cha Cha, earning good comments and scores from the judges, putting them joint top of the leaderboard. Their second dance in week three was the Tango, which was pretty good, apart from a complicated section of staccato head turns, which Spoony got the timing wrong on, and broke out into a huge smile, spoiling the drama and mood of the dance, but still managed to score 27 points again with the judges. This, however, put them in the dreaded mid-table danger zone, and the public vote went against them, and they were the shock exit of the series, after only two competitive dances, finishing twelfth out of fourteen couples.
