More recently Gareth has had a hugely enjoyable and successful career in Musical Theatre (Les Miserable’s, Legally Blonde, Joseph, Footloose… to name but a few).  In 2014 he picked up his skates again to appear in the last ever TV series of Dancing on Ice.  This finale brought back show winners and viewers favourites to compete for one last time!

In 2015, a vocal injury forced Gareth to take time off to rest his voice. Living life on the road and touring non-stop for 10 years took its toll.  During this time he invented Cuppanut – a range of hot coconut drinks.  This venture is a huge success and is available nationwide in stores like Holland and Barrett. To date, Cuppanut has won 8 Food awards.

Gareth’s return to the stage was Footloose the Musical, in unusually for Gareth, a comedy role.  His portrayal of Willard won him as many plaudits as fans.

Represented are pleased to be representing Gareth as he embarks on another part of his career with a series of exclusive shows for P&O Cruise lines through 2018 and beyond.
