“Tony’s Trials” has kept Marathon Talk listeners entertained since the shows early days. At the end of 2020 Tony said farewell to his regular slot with Marathon Talk, to pursue his other interests, including his passion for Bird Watching.
A regular marathoner and fundraiser Tony joined the cast of ITV1’s soap Emmerdale in 2000 as Bob Hope. Prior to this Tony had roles in the likes of Prime Suspect V, Heartbeat, Peak Practice, Brookside and the films Raining Stones and Going Off Big Time. He has appeared on numerous television light entertainment programmes including Blankety Blank, Family Fortunes, Mastermind (winning with specialist subject British Birds) and Stars In Their Eyes (winning with Kenny Rogers, losing with Roy Wood).
Tony is lead singer of covers band White Van Man and doesn’t stretch as much as he should.
