Once famous as a professional footballer with Brentford, Bradley Walsh is now better known for his performances off the pitch. As a comedian and presenter, he made an impact on The Royal Variety Show before conquering the stand-up circuit and starring in a West End play. The versatile entertainer had a successful Sunday show on Capital Radio for two years, and presented The National Lottery. Film roles followed. He played a gangster in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and returned to his footballer roots in Mike Bassett: England Manager. It is for his role as Danny Baldwin on Coronation Street that he is perhaps best known, however.
