Derek Arthur Ramsay[fn 1] (born 7 December 1976)[11][12] is a Filipino-British model, actor, host, and former VJ in the Philippines. He was born in the UK, but from age 7 was raised in the Philippines.[13] His Filipina mother, Remedios Baggao-Ramsay[14] was the head of housekeeping unit of Cadogan Hotel in England, and his British father, Derek Arthur Ramsay Sr., was a detective inspector at Scotland Yard.[15][16][17]



Early in the 2000s, Derek Ramsay found work as an MTV VJ, a model, as well as TV commercial actor.[18] 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.

In April 2012, he signed a three-year contract and transferred to TV5.[19] His first show on TV5 was The Amazing Race Philippines. After his contract expired in February 2015, he signed another three-year contract with TV5 on April 28, 2015.[20]


Derek Ramsay has also been a competitor for the Philippines national ultimate (frisbee) team. Ramsay was the ninth top scorer at the 13th World Ultimate and Guts Championship 2012.[21]

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.[22]


He was educated in the Philippines at Maria Montessori High School and a boarding school in England. He studied for an undergraduate degree in Marketing in New Hampshire and Boston.[23]
