Vernon’s career started when spotted by a model scout at the BBC’s 'Clothes Show Live'. He began a successful modelling career but it was not long before TV called, landing him a regular gig on Channel 4’s ‘T4’ in 2000.
His love of music shone through and Vernon joined Radio 1 in 2006 and presented his weekend show until he left the station in 2012.
Vernon has hosted a wide variety of shows for the all the UK networks, including All Star Family Fortunes, Splash!, 1000 Heartbeats and Beat The Star for ITV1, Just the Two of Us (alongside his wife, Tess Daly) and The World’s Greatest Elvis for BBC1; Girls & Boys, Home for the Holidays and NFL Highlights for Channel 4 (as well as playing the game for UK Champions, London Warriors). You could watch him most recently on Channel 4′s Drive.
He has also forged a successful career in the USA, having hosted Hit Me Baby One More Time for NBC as well as quiz show Million Dollar Mind Game and Skating with the Stars (spin off from Dancing with the Stars) for ABC.
Vernon regularly hosts at corporate functions and events for companies such as Whitbread, Samsung, McDonalds, Argos and and also DJ’s around the world.
