Jack Whitehall's Rise To Fame
Jack had actually gone to school with Twilight's Robert Pattinson and often joked about resenting Pattinson for securing all the best roles in school plays. Jack went on to pursue stand-up and frequented many Channel 4 comedy shows and competitions like 8 Out of 10 Cats, James Corden's A League of Their Own and Stand Up for the Week.
Around the same time, his career really kicked off by being a host and presenter for shows like Celebrity Big Brother. His quick wit and smooth delivery make him a great host. Jack even got to host the 2018, 2019, and 2020 BRIT Awards!
Jacks stand up was earning him quite a bit of attention and he even performed at Kensington Palace for Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall which did not go so well after he made a slight dig at Prince Harry's expense.
In 2017 he even got his own hit Netflix series Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father were Jack and Michael ventured together around Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Their repertoire and frequent burns towards each other made the series especially addicting.
Jack continues to dominate stand-up comedy and has entertained countless fans during quarantine with his hilarious content and interviews. Both his comedic style and his hairstyle have advanced and perfected over time. Jack had dated Crazy Rich Asians actress Gemma Chan for 6 years before splitting in December of 2017 and now is dating model Roxy Horner and the two have been quarantining together.
We can't wait to see whatever Jack is a part of, it is guaranteed to be hilarious!

What did you do in lockdown? Well i spent my time making this. So excited for you to see it. Sporting Nation is a 6 episode compendium of British Sport for @bbcone. I've teamed up with some of the best sports writers in the country and the makers of some of my favourite sports docs like Class of 92 and Sunderland Till I Die to make a show that I think is pretty special. There's no laughter after any of the jokes as we had to shoot it all behind closed doors but hopefully you can still enjoy it regardless. July 10th 8:30pm BBC One and @bbciplayer
