Sam & Mark

 

BAFTA award-winning presenters Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes first appeared on our screens as contestants on Pop Idol back in 2003. Their friendship began whilst filming backstage VT’s and they have been inseparable ever since.

The brand new hosts of the classic revamp, Crackerjack!, the duo are also well-known for presenting the hugely popular Sam & Mark’s Big Friday Wind Up, for which they received two Children’s BAFTA’s during the show’s impressive eight series run.
 
Sam and Mark are family favourites with a wealth of credits including Match of the Day: Can You Kick It, TMi, Copycats, Junior Bake Off, Top of The Pops Reloaded, and Taking the Next Step.

 

Alongside their TV success, the duo are also well-loved authors, having published their first children’s book The Adventures of Long Arm in 2015 followed by the release of their second book The Adventure of Long Arm vs The Evil Supply Teacher. 2017 saw the release of their first picture book The Stink Before Christmas.

 

With hundreds of hours of live TV under their belts, it comes as no surprise that Sam & Mark have also created a high energy and fun-filled family stage show, which they have performed up and down the country, touring theatres and delighting audiences across live events, festivals, and the national institution that is Butlins.
