Tim Lovejoy



Tim Lovejoy began hosting and producing football show Soccer AM on SKY Television in 1996 with co-host Helen Chamberlain. He remained on the show for eleven years as it steadily grew in popularity and enjoyed cult viewing status - much down to Tim's dry wit and sense of humour. Since his departure fans of the show have repeatedly called for his return.

Following the success of Soccer AM Tim ventured into radio DJ'ing joining Xfm before moving to Virgin Radio where he presented the Sunday afternoon show. At the same time Tim's TV presence continued with Tim Lovejoy and the Allstars, on Sky One, on which he chatted with celebrities between performances from a variety of bands.

In 2006, Tim joined the Channel Five Fifth Gear team as permanent co-host.

2007 saw Tim join BBC Radio Five Live as the Wednesday-night host of its football phone-in show 6-0-6. Tim also presented the UK edition of Five's Major League Soccer magazine show David Beckham's Soccer USA.

Since 2006, Tim has co-presented the Sunday-morning TV programme Something for the Weekend on BBC 2. The show combines mouth-watering recipes along with top celebrity chat, and has proved to be a hugely successful show- a Sunday morning favourite.

Tim has put his name to three books and two DVDs. His first book was Lovejoy on Football: One Man's Passion for the Most Important Subject in the World. The two other books are linked to his TV series; "Lazy Brunch", and "Something for the Weekend: 60 fabulous recipes for a Lazy Brunch". Tim's name is also associated with two DVDs on football: Lovejoy and Redknapp's Best of Football, (2007) and Tim Lovejoy's Football Managers Uncut - A Guide to the Game's Greatest Gaffers (2008).

In 2009 Tim was named by The Daily Telegraph as the 49th most eligible bachelor in Britain.
