After six years on the show, Simon made the move into sports broadcasting.

Aside from his presenting career, Simon has also become a popular speaker on mental health, grief and sobriety, speaking to organisations such as Asda, Aviva, the Home Office and Linklaters.

He also had his own podcast titled ”Life Interrupted” – a project which ran for three series and saw the presenter speak to stars about how they found a way through some of life’s toughest challenges.
