Jeremy Guscott
Jeremy Guscott
Rugby legend and TV presenter

Jeremy Guscott is one of England's most capped players. Nicknamed 'The Prince of Centres', he rose through the ranks at Bath to gain a regular place in the club's first 15, and marked his international debut against Romania in 1989 with a hat-trick of tries. Guscott enjoyed the respect of his fellow rugby players and fans worldwide for his speed, determination and all round skill. He was a member of the England team which won successive Grand Slams, and his importance to both Bath and England was illustrated in his immediate selection to both teams after returning from a 17 month career threatening injury.

He works regularly for the BBC, ITV and Radio Five Live.

 

Chris Ofili


Artist

Chris Ofili is one of the rising stars of British art, and his paintings are amongst the most talked about works on the British art scene. In 1998, he won the Turner Prize, and is currently the most famous and successful black British visual artist. His work is controversial because he attaches to the surface of nearly all his pieces pats of elephant dung!


Born in Manchester of Nigerian parents, Chris studied painting at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art. He has had solo exhibitions in New York, London and Berlin. His works adorn the walls of a variety of galleries and are sold at Christies for more than £10,000 a piece. For all his achievements, Chris says all he is looking for 'is to have fun'.
