After a baptism of fire as the North Korea ‘expert’ on James Corden’s World Cup Live, Anthony grabbed a job at satellite channel Ginx TV, where he was allowed to make any TV content he liked as long as it had a budget of under £50 and was about video games. He wrote and presented the comedy sports show Gamesport for three seasons, plus the channel’s flagship show The Blurb, which aired on Challenge TV. He has since presented Video Game Nation, and the cult hit The First Hour, which has a devoted fanbase.
