Steve Jones

C4 Formula 1 Host & Entertainment Television Host

Steve’s media career began when he was approached by Elle Magazine and asked to do some freelance modelling work. Steve went on to work in Australia, Korea and London for various clients such as Versace, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Adidas, and Coca Cola among others. It was a natural progression to the screen as Steve’s original sense of humour and ability to get the very best out of people made him perfect presenter material.

Steve became an instantly recognisable and sought after broadcaster as one of the main presenters of the very popular T4 for Channel 4, where he kept the youth of the nation amused on Saturday and Sunday mornings for 7 years, whilst interviewing the great and good from the entertainment world.

Steve’s popularity and charm was recognised by other broadcasters, and he was soon approached for work on a range of different channels. Among many shows Steve has hosted the BAFTA coverage for E! Entertainment, 101 Ways to Leave a Gameshow and Let’s Dance for BBC 1.

In 2011 Steve landed the incredibly exciting opportunity to host the US version of X Factor, giving him a great introduction to US television. He went on to guest co-host Entertainment Tonight alongside Nancy O’Dell.

Now back in the UK, Steve had a great 2013 – hosting the final series of Let’s Dance for Comic Relief for BBC1, V Festival coverage for Channel 4 and presenting on BBC Radio 2.

In 2014 Steve hosted the BBC Three six-part series Hair, a gripping competition that showcased young British amateur skills in hair styling and then he went on to co-present the long running Waitrose Weekend Kitchen, a Saturday morning breakfast show for Channel 4, alongside Lisa Snowdon.

In 2015 he hosted the edgy live E4 dating show Young, Free & Single LIVE and 2016 saw him become the host of Channel 4’s Formula One coverage alongside David Coulthard, where he has been ever since.  In between Formula One seasons, he also hosted 2 series of Animal Rescue Live: Supervet Special for C4 – A week long live show, attempting to rehome all the animals in Newcastle’s animal shelter.

He continues to host F1 for Channel 4 and 2021 will also see him hosting Curve Media’s new house hunting format Perfect House, Secret Location for Channel4 in which prospective buyers are shown around a range of dream properties but they will have no idea where in the UK their potential homes are..
