Simeon is an established broadcaster and writer who has spent his life ruled by fear… because when something scares him, he is unstoppably drawn towards it. This has resulted in a daring career from the day he left his engineering job to work for free in a radio station, to presenting daily live television to millions of BBC1 viewers.

He’s devised TV quiz shows, managed a boy band, won The London Book Festival, writes jokes for Have I Got News For You and last year wrote his first horror novel.
