TV career[edit]

Ross Lee's Ghoulies[edit]

Lee was the host of Ross Lee's Ghoulies, a horror-comedy themed Saturday morning studio-based show which began broadcasting on Sunday 28 September and ended 13 December 2008 on Nickelodeon UK. It aired in two-hour blocks from 10 am until 12 noon, for 13 weeks. Lee appears as an apparent caricature of himself, as well as several different characters in sketches throughout the show.

Other TV appearances[edit]

Prior to Ross Lee's Ghoulies, Lee hosted a similar programme on CBBC entitled Chute!, which included various video clips and songs taken from the BBC archives and off the internet.[2] He also made two appearances on Channel 4's Friday night comedy show Balls of Steel as the World's Worst (Occupation), portraying a taxi driver and a barman respectively. He also provided a voiceover on the DVD of the show. Lee did not appear in the second or third series of Balls of Steel.

Apart from Chute!, Lee appeared in other CBBC shows; once on SMart, and twice on TMi as Mark Rhodes' "friend", and on the last show for Flack's Musical Chairs. He was eliminated in the third round and received pie in his face. He later got his revenge, along with the other contenders, on Sam and Mark. He has also appeared in the Bo' Selecta! Christmas Special "Ho Ho Ho Selecta", and had a minor appearance on Look Around You in Episode Four where he played Andy Gough.

Lee narrates the British version of MTV's strip show-cum-music video show Pants-Off Dance-Off. He also appears in the 2010 music video for "I Feel Better" by Hot Chip, directed by Peter Serafinowicz.[3]

He stars in hidden camera show The Pranker on BBC Three, in which he pranks unsuspecting members of the general public. The first series ran for six episodes from 14 July - 18 August 2011.
