Jeremy Spake TV personality and presenter.

Career[edit]

Spake began his television career in 1996, making regular appearances on the documentary series Airport, where he worked as the Ground Services Manager for Aeroflot - Russian Airlines. Jeremy was largely based in Terminal 2 (well before the current re-build). His manner easily made him the most high profile contributor of the programme, so much so that the BBC hired him to become a television presenter of light entertainment in his own right. Other programmes he has presented include The Toughest Job In Britain, Holiday, The Angry Pirate and City Hospital. He also works for children's charitable organisations such as the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) and "When You Wish Upon a Star". He also appeared in Moscow for the BBC's 2000 Today programme, broadcast over the turn of 2000.

Writing[edit]

Jeremy has written two books: Jeremy's Airport and The Toughest Job in Britain. Jeremy's Airport was based on his experiences working at Heathrow Airport during the filming of the BBC series Airport. It describes a typical week in his job as an Aeroflot traffic supervisor. In addition, a number of biographical details are given. Jeremy presented a series for BBC TV, The Toughest Job in Britain and his second book is based on the jobs he was filmed doing. Such jobs included replacing the bulbs on Blackpool Tower and work on a turkey farm.

Charity and other work[edit]

Since his television work, Jeremy has been involved in a number of media, aviation and tourism-related businesses. He is also a supporter of and contributor to a number of charities. One such charity is When you Wish Upon a Star.

Jeremy is a fluent Russian speaker and is keen on improving the understanding and relationship between the United Kingdom and Russia.
