Rav served in the British Army for four years, before joining the Metropolitan Police, where he worked for 8 years, where his last job was as a Detective Constable in CID. While working for the Met, he was offered a job on the BBC's Crimewatch programme, and in 2008 took a sabbatical from the police force in order to pursue his media career. He is now the crime correspondent on the BBC programme The ONE Show.
Dancing with a new Strictly professional, Aliona Vilani, Rav competed in series seven of Strictly Come Dancing. They were the first couple to dance in the series, performing a tango in the first ever Friday night programme, and in all previous series, the first couple to dance in the first show have always made it to the final, but after finding themselves in the dance-off in both weeks they danced, Rav was the third celebrity to be voted out of the competition, and they finished 14th out of 16 couples.
