Host of several popular shows broadcast from Britain, including The Gadget Show on Channel 5 and the BBC game show, Don't Scare the Hare.
He was obsessed with video games as a child, which inspired him to find a career that would never force him to grow up.
He was asked to be on the panel of judges for the BAFTA Video Games Awards, a highly selective proposition.
He married his wife in 2012, and the couple had three children together.
Both he and journalist Martine Dennis have been affiliated with the BBC during their careers.
