He's my cus, but even so. He's an outstanding actor. He's worked very hard to get where he is now. You've been listerning to him every day. Narrates Morrisons, domino pizza. The programme "Bouncers" and more. In Misfits which should be on the box Oct/Nov. He was in "Women in Black" His list is endless.

Wab you've squashed his face in the image.

Seen him a couple of times when hes been up in barnsley hes a top bloke, nice and down to earth very unassuming. Obviously he's worked very hard to get where he is and had a good career for which he is reaping the rewards now.

Kids should look and aspire to him, not all these zelebrities getting drunk on reality tv

One of my ex pupils. A talented actor and a brilliant guy. Proud to say I taught him and love to see or hear his programmes and the latest news. x

Went to school with Shaun met up again when he supported Barnsley College with the new build launch. He is truly talented and gave his time to share his experiences with our students who were inspired by him. One of the nicest thing is that he has never forgotten his routes and was proud of his town. Well done Shaun we wish you every success.

No observer. Sure he was in the last couple of episodes of The White Queen though. He is a good actor.
