Tim Lovejoy

Every Sunday morning I tend to watch Something for the weekend on BBC TV, and I always think that Tim isn't such a bad looking guy.  He's not young but still has the looks.

Timothy Paul Lovejoy (born 28 March 1968), is a British television presenter, famous for his Saturday morning football programme on Sky Sports Soccer AM alongside co-host Helen Chamberlain. He is the father of twin girls, Grace and Rose and split from his wife in 2006.

Tim Lovejoy joined Planet 24 working as a researcher for The Big Breakfast, before going on to produce the show.

After the success of Soccer AM, Lovejoy joined Xfm before moving to Virgin Radio, where he briefly presented a Sunday afternoon show once a week .

Lovejoy has also hosted Tim Lovejoy and the Allstars, a show similar to TFI Friday, on Sky One, where he chatted with celebrities along with performances from a variety of bands, from the Manic Street Preachers to The Bees, and including the first TV performance by Babyshambles.

Lovejoy was the co-host of Fifth Gear on Five in 2006.

Lovejoy is now also presenting a Sunday morning TV programme on BBC2 called Something for the Weekend, mainly based on cooking but also showing clips of other programmes, and has features such as gadget round ups and cocktail mixing tips.

It was announced on 5 June 2007 that Lovejoy would be leaving Soccer AM after 11 years.

Following his departure from Soccer AM, it has been announced that Lovejoy will be joining BBC Radio Five Live as host of the Wednesday night edition of its football phone-in show, 606. He will also host the UK edition of Five's new Major League Soccer magazine show David Beckham's Soccer USA.

He is also a fan of Chelsea Football Club and Kansas City Wizards.

As well as supporting Chelsea, Tim has also announced himself as a bit of a Bristol City fan after watching their skillful highlights and unusual incidents (including Baz Savage's "dive" and Lee Trundle's showboating).
