In just five years Josh has gone from open spots to a TV regular, with his breakthrough year in 2020 after making his debut appearance on E4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats, and subsequent appearances on ITV’s Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club and Ch5’s Goes Horribly Wrong series.

Josh then went on to host BBC Three’s Fast Food Face Off, and made guest appearances on ITV2’s Iain Stirling’s CelebAbility, E4’s Reality News and Comedy Central’s Undeniable

He hosts his own historical-gossip podcast Dead Drama, and has made guest appearances on Russell Kane’s Evil Genius and Tom Read Wilson’s Has Words With podcast.
