Leigh Francis is the real name of the British comedian who portrays Keith Lemon, which is the name many know him by. His shows include Bo Selecta, Celebrity Juice, Keith Lemon’s LemonAid, Through the Keyhole, and The Keith Lemon Sketch Show.
Born in Leeds in 1973, Leigh was discovered and encouraged by TV presenter Davina McCall, who helped get him his first TV role on Dom and Kirk’s Nite O’Plenty. He has since gone on to become a popular face on TV, usually as one of his celebrity guises such as Keith Lemon, which many people know him as.
Keith has recently made his acting debut in the Elton John biopic Rocketman. Though only a short role where he speaks four lines as shop worker Pete, Lemon found the work exciting as he did the scene with Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell, two of the films main stars.
