Leigh Francis net worth: Leigh Francis is a British comedian and actor who has a net worth of $10 million dollars. Born in Beston, Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, Leigh Francis attended the Leeds College of Art where he earned a certification in Graphic Design. He began performing stand-up comedy while in school, and caught the attention of television presenter Davina McCall. At her suggestion, he was invited to join the cast of "Dom & Kirk's Nite O Plenty", which aired for one season in 1996. Throughout the late 90s, he portrayed various comedic characters on such shows as, "Popworld" and "Whatever I Want'. In 2002, he was offered the television job that would make him a household name. Channel 4 paid him to develop a number of his more popular characters into their own series. The show was called, "Bo! Selecta", and ran for five seasons. He then spun one of his "Bo! Selecta" characters, Keith Lemon, into a successful television franchise. He is currently appearing as Keith Lemon on "Lemon La Vida Loca", a spoof reality series.
Leigh Francis (born 30 May 1973) is an English entertainer, best known for creating Channel 4's Bo' Selecta! and portraying Keith Lemon in several ITV shows.
Francis was born on 30 May 1973[citation needed] and brought up on a council estate in Old Farnley, Leeds. His father died aged 47 of cancer, and his mother and sister live in Spain. His grandparents were from the Burgenland area of Austria. Francis attended Farnley Park High School (which later changed its name to Farnley Park Maths and Computing College and is now The Farnley Academy), formerly Harrington High School in Leeds. He later studied at the Leeds College of Art and received a qualification in graphic design. Before making his major television breakthrough, he was discovered and encouraged by television presenter Davina McCall, performing in-role stand up comedy in a Southern comedy club. McCall landed Francis his first television role on Dom and Kirk's Nite O Plenty, where he portrayed Bobby Stark, a man who gives tips on how to win over the ladies. The series aired on Paramount Television from January to July 1996. Francis' second television role was as Barry Gibson, a music paparazzo, featured on the early series of Channel 4's Popworld. Francis also starred as various characters, including Gibson, Keith Lemon and Avid Merrion in the series Whatever I Want, which aired late night on ITV in 2000.
Francis lives in Camden Town, London, and on 31 October 2003, at Allerton Castle, North Yorkshire, he married Jill Carter, a beauty therapist. Their adopted son, Bradley was born on 25 July 1998 and their daughter, Matilda, was born in February 2009.
His major TV breakthrough occurred when Channel 4 offered him a ??250,000 deal to produce a series based around his portrayal of television characters, such as his previous roles as Bobby Stark and Barry Gibson, and in 2002, Bo' Selecta! was born. The series featured Francis portraying a series of celebrities by wearing face masks to impersonate them,
