Born: 4th November 1972

Presented with John Leslie, Anthea Turner, Diane-Louise Jordan, Stuart Miles, Katy Hill and Romana D'Annunzio.

Born in Wrexham, Tim Vincent began his acting career when he was thirteen years old, appearing in various productions at Theatre Clwyd. At the age of fifteen he got his break when he won the part of alcoholic teen Billy Ryan in Children's Ward.

In 1993, after six series of the Ward, he joined Blue Peter. During his time with the programme he flew a fighter jet, successfully completed the New York Marathon and travelled to South Africa.

Tim also qualified as a sports scuba diver and gained his licence to race cars and motorbikes. Whilst presenting Blue Peter he could also be seen playing Marty in two series of the BBC One drama Dangerfield and as a presenter on The Clothes Show.

After leaving both Blue Peter and Dangerfield in 1997, Tim carried on presenting The Clothes Show and Short Change, Children's BBC's answer to Watchdog. He later presented the Saturday show Fully Booked.

In 2000 Tim returned to acting to play vet Adam Forrester in Emmerdale. He also appeared in his first feature film Sorted, playing Justin opposite Tim Curry, Jason Donovan and Matthew Rhys.

During 2001, Tim made regularly appearances on So Graham Norton and in 2002 he toured with the plays Bouncers and Lady Chatterley's Lover (the latter as Mellors).
