Llewelyn on Scrapheap Challenge

Robert Llewelyn is one guest that might catch the eye after having such an illustrious TV career in the noughties before dropping off TV after 2008 – these days he is better known for his YouTube channel.

The actor and comedian made a name for himself in sitcom Red Dwarf, before going on to present the popular engineering show Scrapheap Challenge.

Llewelyn also went on to present How Do They Do It?, yet despite being associated with sci-fi and engineering he does not consider himself to be a geek.

He told The Guardian : “I admire geeks, I just have no ability myself. All the proper geeks I’ve ever met can understand maths, computer programming, those thought processes.”

Though Llewelyn appears to be humble about his talents, it’s safe to say he has one very impressive wife.

Born and educated in Brisbane, Australia, Judy Pascoe spent several years as an acrobat, touring with Circus Oz, before turning to writing and stand-up comedy.

While in the circus her main act was balancing a chopstick and three eggs on her nose.

After leaving she moved to the UK and performed on the UK comedy circuit with people like Jo Brand, Alan Davies and Jack Dee, eventually meeting Llewelyn at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Now they share two children – Louis, 25, and Holly, 22 – and live in the Cotswolds.

Discussing their home with The Times, Llewelyn revealed he’d managed to purchase his house for a pretty sum before it became worth what is is today.

He said: “We bought it for £62,000 in 1992, although it was only just habitable. Nothing had been done to it for decades, and alarmingly it even had 1940s wiring. We had to do a lot of structural work simply to stop it from falling down.”

These days Llewelyn makes less TV appearances but spends his time hosting his YouTube series Fully Charged, which is like an electric Top Gear.
