Gethin Jones is a TV and radio broadcaster. His career started by chance on S4C. After three years of presenting a variety of different live shows, Gethin was asked to board the well known Blue Peter ship! There he broke 4 world records, completed 3 life threatening tasks and fulfilled a lifetime ambition of flying with the Red Arrows. He visited 32 countries taking on the most extreme and obscure challenges. By far the most physically and mentally demanding, was completing the UK Royal Marine Commando 30 mile Yomp.
From one extreme to another, a few months later he was dancing his way to the semi-final of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing.He’s presented Dancing With The Stars All Access in America and is a familiar face on It Takes Two.
Gethin has presented a multitude of high profile shows, but his passion to support the armed forces culminated in four series of BBC1’s Remembrance, which was filmed in the heart of the Green Zone in Afghanistan.
Gethin is a self confessed rugby geek; he presents rugby shows and has even taken his knowledge to Celebrity Mastermind.
Gethin and his friend Sion both have autistic nephews.Inspired by Alby and Twm, they have set up their own Autism charity called ‘Nai’. They fund seminars for parents and provide essential equipment to aid autistic children. Their ambition is to build a much needed school for Autistic Children in Wales.
Gethin currently hosts the hugely popular Morning Live programme, every weekday at 9.15am on BBC1.
