Comedian Bobby Davro Performing at the Boxing Dinner

BOBBY DAVRO first came to our TV screens in 1981, but his major breakthrough came two years later, with an appearance in Live From Her Majesty’s, in 1983.

This launched his career, with huge successes across the 1980s; including Saturday night TV shows Bobby Davro On The Box, Bobby’s Sketch Pad, and Bobby Davro’s TV Weekly  — all of which topped the ratings.

During this time, he also made appearances on the popular comedy impressions sketch show, Copy Cats – gaining recognition for being an out-and-out impressionist as much as a comedian.

In 1991, Bobby moved to the BBC, where he made three series – Public Enemy Number One, Rock With Laughter, and Run The Risk – before hosting Yorkshire Television’s Winner Take All, in 1997.

A switch to drama, saw Bobby appear in Eastenders as loveable rogue ‘Vinnie Monks’, in 2007 – the same year in which he recorded a No.1 hit with The Proclaimers, along with Peter Kay, for Comic Relief.

Bobby then took part in the hugely successful show Dancing On Ice, in 2010, before appearing in Celebrity Big Brother in 2015.

In December of that same year, he announced a 20-date UK tour for 2016, starting at the Epsom Playhouse on 17 May 2016.

Bobby lives in Surrey with his three daughters Brittany, Tierney, and Marnie, and – in his rare moments away from the world of show business – he likes nothing better than a game of golf, a spot of fishing, or a glass of Chardonnay in front of the telly.
