About Phil Tufnell

A slow left-arm bowler for England, turned King of the Jungle and now team captain on a Question of Sport, ‘Tuffers’ is a household name.

Tuffers enjoyed a successful career in cricket, spanning over 16 years for Middlesex and England. The slow left-arm bowler took well over 1,000 wickets and had the ability to change a game on its head with the ball in his hand.

Having spent the majority of his career at Middlesex, Tufnell made his England Test debut back on Boxing Day in 1990 against Australia in Melbourne.

This would be the first of 42 test appearances for the cricketer, with over 120 wickets to his name, including five, five wicket hauls and twice earning himself 10 wickets in a match.

Having retired cricket back in 2002, Tufnell became a star of reality TV as he would go on to win the second series of ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!’ in 2003.

From then on, Phil has gone on to compete in Strictly Come Dancing, making it as far as Week 9, as well as appearing on other popular television shows - including as team captain on A Question of Sport since 2008 and a regular on the radio institution 'Test Match Special' since 2003. 

Phil certainly has a vast amount of stories to tell and speaks openly about the time he has spent in Cricket and on TV.
