Mark Rhodes

Foundation ambassador

Mark Rhodes hails from the Wolverhampton area and first started watching Wolves in the late 1980’s.

Having started singing in a band at school, and then doing individual gigs around the Midlands, Mark’s broadcast career launched with huge success back in 2003, when finishing runner-up in the entertainment juggernaut that was Pop Idol, following which he was paired with fellow contestant Sam Nixon a collaboration that forged a strong working partnership, both in music and television.

The duo boast a number one single – ‘With A Little Help from My Friends’  – and an extensive resume of broadcast credits, including Sam and Mark’s Big Friday Wind Up, Match of the Day: Can You Kick It, Junior Bake Off, TMi, Copycats, family classic Crackerjack and Top of the Pops Reloaded.

He has also supported several different charities during his career, and is a patron of the Whizz-Kidz and Kicks Count charities.

Mark was delighted to accept the invitation to become an ambassador of the Wolves Foundation, which was announced in July 2020.

Rhodes said: “Having been a Wolves supporter all my life I’m honoured to become an ambassador for such a worthwhile and important Foundation."
