A True all rounder, Bernie agrees he's on an interesting journey. From his beginnings as a dance band vocalist in his home town of St. Helens his career has taken him around the world many times.
His popularity with American audiences has kept him busy for many years on the Q.E.2 and many other cruise ships and his fascination with visual comedy coupled with a magnificent singing voice ensures success wherever he travels.
After cutting his teeth on the northern club circuit Bernie became a regular TV face in the mid seventies appearing on the Lulu show, presenting 'Crackerjack' guesting on many big name variety shows and during a royal variety performance show reducing the Queen to tears of laughter.
This success guaranteed him more TV and incidentally brought him to the attention of David Redwick one of our top comedy writers, who remembering the quality of his singing voice, waited 25 years, (as you do), and then asked him to appear in the current series of 'Love Soup' the romantic comedy on BBC1.
Famous for his 'marathon running ostrich' Bernie is in great demand for both cabaret, theatre tours and especially pantomime, and, as we speak, is preparing to star in 'Snow White' at the Watersmeet Theatre in Rickmansworth.
His appearance on the Video of 'Amarillo' with Peter Kay and Tony Christie meant he was on our screens again as the song went to number one and stayed there for several weeks.
Bernie revealed the range of his talents once again, and presented his own afternoon show on BBC Radio Sheffield. However busy he will always find time to take to the skies piloting his Microlight Aircraft over his country home in North Derbyshire.
