Gethin Jones is a popular TV and Radio presenter.
Born in Cardiff, Gethin was educated in the Welsh language and went on to obtain a degree in Economics and Geography.
Gethin’s presenting career began on the Welsh version of ‘Top of the Pops’, ‘Popty’ on S4C.
However, it was ‘Blue Peter’ that cemented Gethin’s reputation as a talented presenter and household name in 2005.
Whilst a member of the ‘Blue Peter’ team, Gethin visited 31 countries, taking on extreme and obscure challenges from flying with the Red Arrows in a WW2 Spitfire to being attacked by an alligator in a Louisiana swamp!
He also raced a horse at 40mph, skated the infamous Cresta Run in St Moritz, fought as a Samurai Warrior in Japan, and survived a life threatening submarine escape training exercise.
