He was born in Enfield, England and was raised in Cainta, Rizal, Philippines. His Filipina mother, Remedios Baggao-Ramsay was the head of the housekeeping unit of 11 Cadogan Gardens in England, and his British father, Derek Arthur Ramsay Sr. was an inspector for the Metropolitan Police Service stationed in Scotland Yard.
Early in the 2000s, Ramsay found work as an MTV VJ, a model, as well as TV commercial actor. He was also discovered in the country's longest running noontime show, Eat Bulaga! as a co-host of the segment Pool Watch from 2001 to 2004 on GMA Network. He is best known for his supporting roles in the ABS-CBN television dramas Ysabella, Habang May Buhay and Magkaribal. He also appeared in commercially successful films I Love You, Goodbye, The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin and No Other Woman.
After months of speculations about network transfer, Ramsay returned to GMA Network and signed a contract with the network on April 3, 2019. He started in the network as a co-host of Eat Bulaga! from 2001 to 2004.
Ramsay is currently the head ambassador of the Philippine national beach football team, and was set to participate in the 2013 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Asian qualifiers, but ultimately did not due to his commitment to Kidlat, where he was playing the lead role.
