As the Science Guy on Blue Peter he’s run on custard, made a comet, and built a giant battery from 600 potatoes! As a regular on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch Greg dissected a (jelly!) brain, made home-made icecream, played music WITH FIRE and much more! Greg also hosts BBC Three / BBC Worldwide’s Secrets Of Everything where he’s been buried alive, frozen, shot, electrocuted, and even gone under the knife in the name of science! And he’s driven a jet-powered go-kart, unleashed a huge flour explosion and built a real levitating hoverboard as a host for BBC Worldwide’s Factomania.
Greg’s YouTube films have had more than 8,000,000 hits. He is regularly approached by clients to present (and often write & produce) You Tube series and has made content for Honda Racing F1, AXA, Nekton and more. Greg is the regular host for the BBC’s Brit Lab channel, answering questions from ‘What causes a beer belly?’ to ‘Are gingers going extinct?’. He also posts behind-the-scenes vlogs from shoots on his own channel (more like an online CV rather than a YT channel!).
Greg’s got a first class degree in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University, a Masters in Science Media Production from Imperial College and has been recognised as one of the leading science communicators in the UK by The Wellcome Trust who have given him the prestigious position of ‘Engagement Fellow’.
