Tom Skinner


Tom Skinner is a grafter. Born and bred in Romford, he’s spent a lifetime on market stalls and has always had an eye for opportunity. He’s sold everything from laughing monkeys to luxury mattresses! Like a magician, Tom can make something out of nothing, although he’s seen it all disappear just as quickly, too.

Tom first hit our screens as the stand out contestant on series 15 of ‘The Apprentice’ and has gone on to appear on a variety of shows including ‘Celebrity Masterchef’, ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’, ‘The Wheel’ and ‘Michael McIntyre’s Big Show’.

His motivational social media videos have become hugely popular and last year he went on to release his debut book ‘Graft – How to Smash Life’ (Harper Collins).

He is a regular contributor to TalkSport Radio and recently launched their men’s mental health podcast ‘The Men’s Room’ with Neil Ruddock.

Tom has worked with brands including McDonalds, Sainsbury’s, Easyjet, Asda and Ford and can often be found at the London Stadium following his beloved West Ham United.

He lives in Essex with his wife and three children.
