Justin Lee Collins at Centre Page
In 2002, Collins made a number of shows, for Bravo and MTV but his big break came when he became the host of the companion show for the first series of Strictly Come Dancing.
He was replaced by Claudia Winkleman the following year and the show moved from BBC Three to BBC Two.
He was also one of the presenters of Channel 4 & Paramount's Flipside TV
In 2005 and 2006, Collins presented The Games: Live At Trackside on E4 alongside Caroline Flack.
The series was the companion show to Channel 4's sports-based reality programme The Games.
Collins is one of the current presenters of The Sunday Night Project (previously named The Friday Night Project) alongside Alan Carr for Channel 4. He has also hosted a number of Bring Back... shows in which he aims to reunite groups, normally who are associated with TV or music. He also made a series for Channel 4 entitled The Convention Crasher, aired in late 2007 and early 2008, in which he learned skills such as clowning and ventriloquism in an attempt to win prizes at professional conventions.
On 7 May 2007, he became the latest "celebrity friend" of Paul O'Grady to fill the comic's shoes as guest presenter on The New Paul O'Grady Show on Channel 4 whilst O'Grady took a break.
His distinctive West Country accent, enthusiasm for cult television and music and his "cave man" image are amongst his trademarks.
