Bradley Walsh (born June 4, 1960) is a British comedian and latterly television actor. In the early 1980s he also played football for Brentford F.C. alongside England U15 of 1976 captain Paul Walker.
He first came to prominence on television in 1994 as a presenter of the National Lottery before going on to host the British version of Wheel of Fortune in 1997. In 1998 he presented another ITV1 game show, Win, Lose or Draw before turning his attention to acting.
He starred in the 2001 film Mike Bassett: England Manager before joining the cast of short lived British soap opera Night and Day in 2002.
In 2004, he began playing the role of factory boss, Danny Baldwin, in the top rated Granada TV soap opera, Coronation Street, for which he is now best known. Danny was originally going to be called Vic, but Walsh asked for the name to be changed to Danny after his late father. People had previously called him "Young Danny", so he thought it wouldn't be so bad when people called him by his character's name.
He won the 'Best Dramatic Performance' award at the British Soap Awards in May 2006 for his role as Danny Baldwin.
