Liam Lewis is no stranger to Radio Hartlepool.  His first on-air interviews where as part of his job as a lifeguard for Hartlepool Borough Council where he came along and talked about sporting activites for townspeople.

Then Liam told us that he was about to appear on ITV dating show, 'Take Me Out', which is hosted by Paddy McGuiness. Liam proved to be a funny, memorable character and that lead to some personal appearances and modelling work.

Now working as a firefighter, Liam is also one of the stars of 'Ex On The Beach', an MTV series where a group of lads and lasses believe they are going to date each other. However, one by one, their ex's appear on the beach (hence the title!) and tensions are raised.

During the run we are seeing a side of Liam jokingly named as 'the stirrer'. Liam is determined to fan a few flames and cause some drama. Its rivetting stuff and very funn at times.

We think Liam has a bright future ahead of him and can't wait till he pops into Radio Hartlepool towers to update us.

Ex On The Beach is on MTV every Tuesday at 10pm.
