Jeremy Nicholas is an award winning TV and radio broadcaster, well known for his quirky ‘And Finally’ reports for BBC News.

He’s reported on the face of Elvis appearing on a piece of Stilton cheese and Speedy the tortoise having an artificial leg fitted. Tragically pigeonholed as an end-of-bulletin man, he never gets the lead story.

However every cloud has a silver lining and Jeremy’s now a well-known voice on the after-dinner circuit and was the 42nd person in the UK to be awarded a Fellowship of the Professional Speaking Association.

He’s the director of Talking Toolbox and runs masterclasses on how business speakers can be more entertaining and engaging. He’s on a mission to make Britain’s conferences more interesting. It’s tough work, but someone has to do it.

However kids of all ages are more impressed that he’s the voice of the global best selling football video game FIFA 15. If your children have this game, you will know this man’s voice, perhaps a little too well.

TV sports fans will recognise him as the early face of live football on Channel 5, back in the days when the picture was a bit fuzzy. When the signal improved he was replaced by someone better looking.

Jeremy’s career highlights include being punched by maverick football manager Brian Clough during an interview, losing out to Anthea Turner in the hunt for a new Blue Peter presenter and being ambushed live on air by an armed man claiming to be Jesus.

He’s written a couple of books, one of which was good. His third book will be finished when his speaking work dries up and he can find time to write it.
