Jools Holland hosts the long-running BBC 2 show, Later with Jools Holland, featuring popular and eclectic bands as well as many of the music world's living legends.
Jools learnt to play boogie woogie piano at the age of eight. At fifteen he met up with Chris Difford and Glen Tillbrook and together they formed Squeeze. They sold millions of records, from their first hit Cool for Cats to Hourglass, appearing at Madison Square Garden and the Royal Albert Hall.
Jools moved on to co-host Channel 4's The Tube, with the late Paula Yates. His television career took off, and he presented a rejuvenated Juke Box Jury and a new variety series, The Happening. He also made films on Nashville and New Orleans, and spent a year in New York fronting NBC's Sunday Night.
The Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra performed as the house band on Chris Evans' Don't Forget Your Toothbrush.
'Jools was roundly voted the best thing that ever happened. He definitely hit the jackpot.' Digital
