Dicko, the English expat who is bold, charming, and loud, has been a familiar face in Australian media since 2003. He is best known as the original ‘bastard’ talent judge on the “Australian Idol”, which made him a household name. Over the years, he has appeared, hosted and competed on several other TV shows, including “My Restaurant Rules”, “Celebrity Survivor: Vanuatu” and “Dancing with the Stars”, and even won “Celebrity Apprentice”.

He has made a stage debut as Widow Twankey in Bonnie Lythgoe’s pantomime production of “Aladdin and his Wondrous Lamp” at Sydney’s State Theatre.

Before his stardom, Dicko spent over two decades in the record industry in the UK. He has worked for renowned labels such as Creation Records, Sony, A&M, and BMG and collaborated with legendary artists such as Celine Dion, Ozzy Osbourne, and Primal Scream.

As the Head of International at BMG UK, Dicko helped develop the careers of artists like Jamiroquai, Pearl Jam, Natalie Imbruglia, and Westlife. He moved to Australia in 2001 to become the General Manager of Marketing for BMG Australia.

Recently, Dicko has returned to his roots by mentoring young up-and-coming artists and producing live music festivals on the Sunshine Coast. These include Almost The Greatest Gig On Earth and Dicko’s Country Spit Roast.
