Breaking into Showbiz with Ben Shephard


What does it take to break into TV? Is there a secret formula for success? In this special episode of Mi365 Podcasts, British TV personality Ben Shephard shares his incredible story from growing up in Essex, through to hosting Ninja Warrior UK and ITV’s Tipping Point.

In this interview, Ben describes how never saying no to opportunities, coupled with a relentless attitude led him to making it big, despite some major setbacks.

Ben outlines his passions outside the TV studio too – namely fitness and sport and discusses with Pete the new challenges he is facing; a severe back injury from marathon running.

In this interview, Ben shares with us his key beliefs throughout this fascinating podcast including:


  1. The importance of resilience & ‘bouncebackability’.
  2. The power of being authentic and believing in yourself.
  3. Why shortcuts never work.
  4. Never taking life for granted – “you’re only ever as good as your last episode”.
