Mitchell Johnson joined Live & Kicking at the start of
series 3 and stayed right up to the end of series 7, making a final return
to the show for the very last programme.
He was the voice-over man who lived in the cupboard that at times had a
large MITCH logo on the door and was never seen on air.
Mitch was already known for his voice having hosted a Virgin Radio show of
his own from the launch of the network.
His voice has also featured on several other BBC shows including Friends
Like These, Children in Need, The National Lottery and Linford's
Record Breakers, and can still be heard on voice overs for both radio
We say that he was never seen on air, but an attempt was made, by the
Leprechauns, at the end
of one edition of Live & Kicking to reveal him, but things
didn't quite go to plan!
However, we have two documented pictures of Mitch from two separate Crew
photos so you can see the man himself.
After publishing the above, the following information was received from
site visitor Russ Wright:
"I can confirm he has appeared on television in person on a show
called The Priory on Channel 4 teatime. You may remember it from around
2000/2001 in which former L&K presenters ZoŽ Ball and Jamie Theakston
presented. One segment featured guessing a mystery person for the week and
one of them was Mitch. They would give clues throughout the show but the
people they had to guess were a bit vague including the person behind the
suit of Bungle from Rainbow!"
