Scott Wright - Host
Scott started his acting career in Coronation Street playing series regular Sam Kingston who famously stripped in the Rovers Return. During his time on the street Scott was nominated for a National TV Award as most popular newcomer and was delighted and flattered to win the less prestigious but certainly more humorous ‘Rear of the Year’ title with Charlotte Church!
Over the years Scott has gained several notable acting credits on TV with Granada TV’s Crossroads and BBC’s Doctors to name but a few. Added to this he played the title role in Merlin Film Internationals Tristan. Scott has also been seen in ITV’s Emmerdale, Channel 4’s Shameless and BBC1’S Casualty. Outside television Scott has appeared in several notable national Theatre Tours including Bill Kenwrights production of The Shawshank Redeption.
Scott first displayed his musical talents on Celebrity Stars in their Eyes and has since gone on to share the stage with multimillion selling artists such as David Cassidy, Alexander O’Neil and Motown legends Martha Reeves, Candi Staton and New Kids on The Block star Jordan Knight to name but a few.
Recently Scott has appeared in a national tour of The Shawshank Redemption and ITV1’s Midwinter of the Spirit, playing Anna Maxwell Martins’ husband Sean Watkins. It also starred David Threlfall. This year Scott has filming a new, yet to be announced TV series called ‘The Two Wolves’ co-starring Sir Derek Jacobi, James Cosmo, Francis Barber and American Emmy Award winning actress Dove Cameron.
