John Thomson is probably best known for his roles in the hit TV shows “The Fast Show” and “Cold Feet”, but his career has also seen him appear alongside Steve Coogan in “Knowing Me, Knowing You … with Alan Partridge”, “Coogan’s Run” and the film “24 Hour Party People” – the pair also won the Perrier Comedy Award for their act at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1992.

His role as Pete Gifford in “Cold Feet” led to a Best Tv Comedy Actor nomination, and his “Hobson’s Choice” stage role earned him an award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. After a guest stint on “Coronation Street” in 2008, John has returned for a six month contract on the Street.

Iain Lee twitterview

Iain Lee had his big breakthrough in Channel Four’s 11 O’Clock Show back in the day, the show that also featured Ali G, Ricky Gervais and Mackenzie Crook among others.

Since C4’s early morning programme R.I.S.E. finished, which Iain co-presented, Iain has become a mainstay on radio stations such as LBC, Virgin and now Absolute Radio where he presents a break from non-stop music with an irreverent phone-in show (he recently wrestled a listener).

Iain’s occasional podcast Shindiggery can be gotten via his website iainlee.co.uk/

IainLeeHardly. The Scum Also Rises starts filming this week for BBC2. It’s not a starring role. I’m a regular but it’s a small part.
