Joe Forrester

Joe Forrester is a TV, Radio presenter and columnist across a number of outlets for television, online, radio and print. Despite having a History degree and regularly boring anyone who’ll listen with uninteresting tit bits about early 20th Century dictatorships, Joe’s career has been built around pop culture and he now recalls more about the amorous proclivities of young popstars than he does about Stalinist agricultural policy.

He has conducted over 500 interviews with stars such as Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington and The Rolling Stones, through to Jedward and TOWIE stars, to super cool independent movie directors. He has a knack for attracting the advances (often terrifying and unexpected) of many of his interviewees with hilarious/traumatic consequences, including one particularly frightening encounter with a popular Doctor Who character and a none too thinly-veiled proposition from an intimidatingly sloshed Big Brother contestant!

Joe is the new presenter for Series 5 of What’s Up TV on Pick TV (Freeview channel 11, Sky 152, Virgin 180, Freesat 14); presents for ITN featuring on ITV2, 5*and 4Music; OK! Magazine Online featuring on both the US and UK sites; Red Carpet News TV and lots of other lovely telly channels and outlets globally. He also has a regular slot on 94.9 BBC London as a showbiz reporter, presents on 89.6 Westside FM and writes an entertainment column, also called JoeBusiness (too vain?), syndicated out to a number of websites weekly and popular youth magazine Urban Coco every month.

He is well-versed in all areas of pop culture and youth-focused nonsense. He has a nerdy obsession with film and television and never tires of pointing out obscure characters and correcting people over insignificant dates and trivia something that, bafflingly, women don’t find attractive. His knowledge and love of music ranges from Katy Perry to Kasabian, Adam Ant to A$AP Rocky and don’t let the tight jeans and silly hair fool you, he’s quite the urban music aficionado!

Joe is also currently writing his own projects for TV combining his knowledge of pop culture and passion for history, which he has a degree in… Just think ‘Simon Schama in skinny jeans!’

He also walks like John Wayne and has a mole called ‘Jeremy’.
