Steve has been doing his act for 15 years, he has huge passion for what he does and loves making people laugh. Back in 1987 he saw a talent show on TV called New Faces. One of the acts was a ventriloquist called Jimmy Tamley, Steve loved it so much he decided that’s what he wanted to do. He discovered that Jimmy Tamley lived round the corner from him so he knocked on his door and asked him for lessons. Steve learnt from Jimmy for many years and ended up touring with him around the country. Steve now lives in Sussex with his wife Nina and his one year old daughter Lola-May. Steve is absolutely over the moon to have been the Wild Card in the final of BGT and to have had such an overwhelmingly warm response to his 'Simon & Sinitta' skit.
