Bobby Davro recently shot back into the limelight with his appearance on Celebrity Big Brother where he made the final and reminded us just how much we love him! Bobby has been entertaining us for over 30 years and has enjoyed an outstanding and hugely versatile career in show business.
Comedian, Actor, Impressionist and Entertainer, Bobby made his TV debut in 1981, but his major breakthrough came with an appearance in LIVE AT HER MAJESTY’S IN 1983. This led to his own Saturday night series BOBBY DAVRO ON THE BOX, BOBBY’S SKETCH PAD, TV WEEKLY, which immediately topped the ratings for six consecutive years. In 1991 Bobby moved to the BBC and made three series, PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE, ROCK WITH LAUGHTER and RUN THE RISK. In 1997 Bobby hosted for Yorkshire Television’s WINNER TAKES ALL for 65 programmes.
An acting career beckoned and Bobby was asked to join the cast of Eastenders to play the lovable rogue ‘Vinnie Monks’.
Bobby then went on to take part in ITV’s hugely successful show ‘Dancing on Ice’.
Versatility is the key to Bobby’s longevity and he has enjoyed huge success in TV, Voice Overs, Pantomime, Summer shows, corporate entertainment, award presentations and caberet.
Bobby lives in Surrey with his three daughters Brittany, Tierney and Marnie. In his rare moments away from the world of show business, Bobby likes nothing better than a game of golf, a spot of fishing, or a glass of Chardonnay in front of the telly.
