Later that year, he took over T4's teen strand on Channel 4. In his impressive career of nearly 25 years, Ben has worked alongside Susanna Reid, Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins.

Apart from TV gigs, Ben has also starred in four films - one of which will be a big surprise for you. In 2009, Ben played Diagon Alley Father in the popular Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. However, his role remained uncredited and thus, lesser-known to the world.
