Best known for presenting on BBC Radio 1, Dev began his career in children’s television on BBC Two every Sunday morning as a presenter and DJ to millions of young people. His undeniable popularity led to him hosting his own show on BBC’s 1Xtra and was soon fast tracked to BBC Radio 1. Dev did a long stint hosting early breakfast, warming the nation up for then host Chris Moyles who was later succeeded by Nick Grimshaw. Dev later moved to host the much-coveted Weekend breakfast show before taking over the now hugely popular weekend afternoon shows on Radio 1 from 1-4pm with Alice Levine.

He has also competed on Celebrity MasterChef, getting through to the final, as well as hosting Bafta TV Awards and most recently appearing on Channel 4’s SAS Who Dares Wins for Stand Up To Cancer.
