Charles Collingwood – Playing Away
After Dinner Speaker
Subject of This is Your Life, Winner of the Weakest Link and a regular on Just a Minute, Charles Collingwood is no ordinary actor. Although trained at RADA his career has been intriguingly diverse. Apart from extensive theatre work, Charles has read the News on the World Service, presented countless children’s TV shows, co-hosted a gameshow series with Bernard Manning and, of course, created the character Brian Aldridge ( the JR of Ambridge) in the Archers over 21 years ago. All recent celebrity news are available on this link.
Charles has many stories to tell. Not just about his time in Ambridge but anecdotes relating to all and sundry across the world of show business. He has spoken in Men’s Clubs, to Manchester United executives, Women’s Institutes and recently at the Grosvenor House Antiques Fair lunch in London.
