On This Day

Timmy Mallett

Artist / Entertainer / Broadcaster

Born on this day (1955), Timmy Mallett first came to the public's attention as a TV presenter on the Wide Awake Club, a new Saturday morning children's programme on TV-am (1984). He has continued to work in broadcasting, performed in many pantomimes and has recorded a number of novelty singles.

He is known for his striking visual style, colourful glasses, loud shirts, and giant pink foam mallet, known as Mallett's Mallet, as well as his catchphrases - utterly brilliant! and blaaah!

What is less known is that Mallett is an accomplished oil painter and acrylic artist whose work sells in galleries across UK and Europe. His work is distributed and published in limited editions by De Montfort Fine Art and Buckingham Fine Art.

In 2002, he painted 50 portraits for the Queen's jubilee including Wendy Craig, Jim Rosenthal, Lorraine Kelly, Ulrika Jonsson and Sir Clive Woodward.

In 2012, Mallett won the Best up and coming artist Fine Art Trade Guild. In the same year he painted a telephone box in Windsor with likenesses of the Queen, Prince Harry and Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge.
