BAFTA-winning comedian Iain Stirling is best known as the brilliantly funny voice of the hit reality show Love Island (ITV2), which is now in its fourth series. Following his success on Love Island, he took on the role of host for ITV2’s new physical comedy entertainment show, CelebAbility (now in its second series) adding to an extensive list of television credits including, The Jonathan Ross Show, Saturday Kitchen (BBC One), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, The Chris Ramsey Show, Drunk History (Comedy Central), The Big Narstie Show (Channel 4), Unpsun with Matt Forde (DAVE) plus an array of panel shows, such as Celebrity Juice, Safe Word (ITV2) and Virtually Famous (E4).
Iain burst onto the comedy scene whilst studying for a Law degree at Edinburgh University, reaching the finals of both the Paramount Funniest Student competition (2009), and the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year competition (2009) and has since performed six consecutive sold-out and critically-acclaimed shows, Happy To Be The Clown? (2012), Iain Stirling At Home (2013), Everything (2014), Touchy Feely (2015), Onwards! (2016), and U OK Hun? (2017) at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
A driving force behind the concept of comedy panel show The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), Iain has co-written and hosted five series which saw him win 2018’s RTS Scotland’s On Screen Personality and 2017’s Children’s BAFTA Best Presenter Award (2017).
Iain has written for, developed and presented a number of other CBBC projects, including: Help! My Supply Teacher Is Magic, 12 Again and All Over the Place. His love of football has led him to commentate for CBBC’s Red Button Coverage of the World Cup and he has also appeared on CBBC’s Match of the Day Kickabout, Hawksbee and Jacobs (talkSPORT) and Football Tonight (BT Sport) alongside Rio Ferdinand.
In May 2018 Iain announced the release of his first book Not Ready to Adult Yet which was published through HarperCollins on the 23rd August, along with a companion podcast of the same name. Not Ready to Adult Yet is packed full of hilarious life lessons from the voice of a generation and is Iain’s ill-informed guide to what life is really like for millennials, and how they can navigate it better
