He may have been born and raised in staid Berkshire but two week's into his stint inside the Bigg Boss house, he's already rubbed the notoriously humourless Salman Khan the wrong way, been outrageously camp and fought over who should do breakfast.
Andy Kumar, a popular "VJ" on Channel V, the hippest purveyor music and lifestyle in India, is one of 16 housemates in the Indian version of that great social experiment that is Big Brother.
Kumar joins a host of other "celebrities" - India doesn't have an "ORDINARY" version of Big Brother - including the sister of Bollywood star, an actress known for "Item Numbers", a Swedish beauty trying to make it in Bollywood, a little-known film producer and a wrestler, among others.
Kumar though is not just a pretty face with a well-groomed moustache; he is also one of the creative team behind Rifco Arts, the British Asian Theatre Company and has worked as a Choreographer and Costumer Designer on a number of Rifco productions including 'Deranged Marriage' and the mega-hit 'Britain's Got Bhangra'.
Originally from Berkshire, he moved to Mumbai eight years ago and has since become a well-known TV host and is widely acknowledged as the face of Channel [V].
Among his most popular shows have been 'Beauty and the Geek India', 'Dare to Date', 'Date My Folks' and 'Get Gorgeous', a show similar to Britain's Next Top Model.
Kumar has ventured into Bollywood as well, designing costumes and choreographing for 'Bachna E Haseeno', 'Page 3', and Ram Gopal Varma's 'James'.
