Mini Bio (1)

Iain Lee is a British TV and radio personality.

He graduated in performing arts from Middlesex University. Although he is mainly known for his work presenting, he has acted in both sitcoms and sketch shows. He is well-liked by popular British comedian Bob Mortimer who has cast him in "Monkey Trousers (2000)" and "Tittybangbang (2005)" and he has also acted alongside Adam Buxton in "The Persuasionists (2010)".

Between 1998 and 2000, he presented Channel 4's tri-weekly rude comedy programme, "The 11 O'Clock Show (1998)", where every night he would go out on the street and interview people about their views on cloning Princess Diana, and other such bizarre subjects. He is also well known for presenting Channel 4 shows "RI:SE (2002)" and "Thumb Bandits (2001)", appearing on "Big Brother (2000)" spin-off shows including "Big Brother's Little Brother (2001)" and "Big Brother's Bit on the Side (2011)", as well as reviewing the morning newspapers on "Sky News: Sunrise (1989)" and "This Morning (1988)".

Outside of presenting, he has had an incredibly successful record when appearing on celebrity editions of popular British game shows and won his episodes of "The Weakest Link (2000)", "Mastermind (1972)", and "Pointless Celebrities (2010)".

As well as appearing on TV, he has also made a name for himself on the radio. After a spell on XFM between 1999 and 2001, he fronted a show on LBC 97.3 from January 2005 to November 2007 and went on to present on Absolute Radio, Virgin Radio and BBC Three Counties.

In the spring of 2016, he was unveiled as the host of late-night phone-in show "The Late Night Alternative (2016)", alongside his producer and close friend Katherine Boyle. The show is streamed on YouTube on weekdays between 10pm and 1am; it has won huge critical acclaim and is unlike anything you will hear anywhere else.

Between November and December 2017, he featured as a contestant on the British reality TV adventure series, "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! (2002)", in which he finished in third place, losing out on second by just 0.09%. Following his time in the jungle, he has been offered several television gigs and can currently be seen presenting competitions on "Loose Women (1999)" and as a guest entertainment editor on "Good Morning Britain (2014)".
