BRMB presenter Tom Binns became former BRMB presenter Tom Binns on Christmas Day 2009. It was on that day that he stopped the Birmingham radio station’s broadcast of the Queen's Speech, declared it to be “Two words: Bor-ring”, and played the Wham! song Last Christmas instead.

According to Tom, there’s plenty more to that story than meets the eye, but the absolute bottom line is that he was subsequently sacked from the station.

Not that the dismissal has weighed too heavily on his career in the years which have followed, thanks in no small measure to his impressive comic talent.

He’s best known on the circuit for his alter egos, Ivan Brackenbury - an inept hospital radio DJ - and Ian D Montford - a man whose propensity for getting things wrong belies his belief that he’s Britain's top psychic.
