He has featured in such light entertainment shows as Live & Kicking, Any Dream Will Do, How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, and I`d Do Anything as well as appearing on the celebrity ice skating show Dancing on Ice.

Between 1983 and 1985 he performed in productions of Hello, Dolly!, Oliver!, Camelot, Li`l Abner and Anything Goes.
