A Mancunian-born actor who became associated with a number of Liverpudlian roles, he has been appearing on British television since the 1970s. As of January 2012[update], his most recent role is a recurring one in White Heat, but his career stretches all the way back to at least Philip Hinchcliffe's Target in the late 1970s.
The shows in which he's had a substantial recurring role include: Robert Banks Stewart's Bergerac; Waterfront Beat; Brookside; the 1996 run of The Liver Birds; and Casualty. He's also had smaller recurring roles on Coronation Street; EastEnders; and Little Britain, with Tom Baker, Matt Lucas and David Walliams.
Among the many guest-starring gigs he's had are tuns on Law & Order UK with Freema Agyeman and Bill Paterson; All Creatures Great and Small with Peter Davison and Lynda Bellingham; Emmerdale Farm; and Hi-de-Hi!
