Jonathon Wilkes has had a wonderfully varied career, winning the Cameron Mackintosh Young Entertainer of the Year award in 1996. He was the youngest star in the Blackpool Pleasure Beach end-of-pier-style show, his success there leading to television work on the BBC programme Hype. He fronted ITV’s You’ve Been Framed, Love and has appeared on The Match, Soccer Aid and All Star Cup. Starting at the beginning of 2009, he made weekly guest appearances on the ITV show Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.
In 2000, he started working as a singer: his debut single ‘Just Another Day’ went to number 24 in the UK Singles Chart. In 2006 he joined Robbie Williams on his Close Encounters Tour.
His stage work includes starring in the musical Godspell in 2002, alternating the roles of Jesus and Judas every night with Daniel McPherson. Between 2002 and 2003, he starred as Frank N Furter in The Rocky Horror Show’s 30th anniversary national tour. He also played Danny in a Christmas production of Grease, and in 2007 toured with the Donmar Warehouse production of Guys and Dolls as the lead Sky Masterson.
Subsequent work includes The Wedding Singer (2008), Queen’s We Will Rock You, the part of Billy Flynn in Chicago at London’s Cambridge Theatre, and playing the title role in Dick Whittington the pantomime at Stoke-on-Trent’s Regent Theatre.
After starring in a number of Regent Theatre Christmas shows, after a year out when he performed at Aylesbury, he returns to Stoke in 2012 to star in its panto and to relaunch the smash-hit variety show Stoke’s Top Talent. Once again the winning act will be offered a professional contract to appear in The Regent's pantomime. However, this year the cash prize has been doubled to £2,000 and there will also be two runners-up prizes of £500.Read Less
