Strictly Sunderland

The BBC's flagship show Strictly Come Dancing has returned to our screens, and this year features a former Sunderland student.

Comedian and actor Chris Ramsey studied BA Film and Media at the University from 2005 to 2007. During his studies Chris's stand-up career took off, he was nominated Chortle Student Comedian of the Year in 2008, and he never completed his degree.

As well as sold-out solo stand-up tours, Chris has appeared regularly on Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and Celebrity Juice, and from 2012-2013 was lead in the popular sitcom, Hebburn, written by fellow former Sunderland student Jason Cook, who graduated BA Media Production in 2004.
