Here is all you need to know about the To Trend on Twitter cast:
Keeley-Jo Jupp – Susie Jenkins/Susie Mumma
Keeley-Jo graduated from East 15 acting school and immediately landed a featured role in the music video Overjoyed for Matchbox Twenty, which has since received over 2.5 million hits on Youtube.
Keeley-Jo then went on to play Chloe in British feature film Night Bus which was screened at the BFI film festival as well as playing Scarlet in upcoming indie feature film Viewfinder. She also plays Kerri in love story Hard and Soft.
She also enjoys theatre and has performed in fringe plays such as Don’t Dress for Dinner directed by Adrian Fear at the Landor Theatre, London.
David Baddiel – Narrator
David was first known as one of the stars of The Mary Whitehouse Experience and then Newman and Baddiel In Pieces. In 1992, with Rob Newman, David performed to 12,500 people in the UK’s first ever arena comedy show. He is credited with making comedy “the new rock and roll” although no one is really sure who said that…
In 1994 David and Frank Skinner created Fantasy Football League allowing them to talk about football for a living for over 10 years. The pair, along with The Lightening Seeds, wrote the iconic unofficial England anthem Three Lions, which has been number one three times and is still heard at games around the world. I guess this would been seen as the ‘new lad’ phase.
In 2000 David and Frank created the hit ITV show Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned, going out live and unscripted for over 60 episodes. They joined up together again in 2006 and 2010 to record one of the first hit podcasts, Baddiel and Skinner’s World Cup Podcasts, live from Germany and South Africa. The show was downloaded over a million times and was one of the first podcasts to be nominated for a Sony award.
Away from the screen, David has been writing for nearly 20 years. He has published seven books to date; Time for Bed, Whatever Love Means, The Secret Purposes, The Death of Eli Gold, The Parent Agency, The Boy Who Could Do What He Liked and The Person Controller.
In 2010 David wrote his first movie with the hit indie film The Infidel, starring Omid Djalili, Richard Schiff, Matt Lucas and Miranda Hart. Following its success, and a Kickstarter campaign, a stage version premiered at Theatre Royal Stratford East in autumn 2014.
After nearly 15 years away David returned to the stage in 2013 with his critically acclaimed show FAME: Not The Musical. The show discussed David’s strange relationship with celebrity and what it is like to live a life in (and out of) fame. In 2016 David premiered his new show My Family: Not The Sitcom at the Menier Chocolate Factory. A sell out, critically acclaimed run saw the show transfer to the West End at the Vaudeville Theatre.
