Celebrity Love Island Contestant
Leo was brought up in South London and has been performing ever since he can remember. He was a student at the Brits School of Performing Arts, whose previous pupils include Katie Melua, Imogen Heap, Amy Winehouse and The Feeling to name just a few. At the age of 12 he was acting in a play called "A Raisin in the Sun" at The Watford Theatre and he was also the youngest artist ever to be singed by record label Sony at just 14 years of age.
Apart from recording songs with Mike Skinner for `The Streets` albums, Leo has been touring for about 4 years performing all over the UK, Europe, USA, Japan and Australia accompanying Mike on vocals. He did countless TV Performances with The Streets, such as Top Of The Pops, CDUK, Jonathan Ross and Jools Holland. They also headlined many festivals including V Festival and Reading Festival.
Leo was a participant in `Love Island 2006` for ITV 1 and was also on the sister show `Aftersun` on ITV2. He didn`t have a moment`s hesitation in saying yes to the prospect of two months in Fiji. Leo said at the time: "What right do I have to say no to this? There are worse ways to earn a living. I thought the last series was good. Paul Danan was crazy; he made it look like fun. Out of the girls, I liked Kelly Brook best – even though she wasn`t a contestant - and also Isabella Hervey, who looked innocent but also, looked like she could get led astray. There are going to be beautiful girls on a beautiful island so it wasn`t a difficult decision".
Leo also took part in `The Match 2006` for Sky 1, where celebrities played football against legends such as Ian Rush & Paul Gascoigne. He was also on the celebrity `Weakest Link` with Anne Robinson, which was transmitted on BBC in January 2007.
He is currently writing and producing his own debut solo album. "I love all sorts of music, from classical to hip hop R&B to garage and cheesy pop. Right now, I`m listening to Coldplay, Zero 7, Jay-Z "
