I often get asked by customers “who is the voice over from the Britain’s Got Talent and X Factor reality TV shows?” and “can you do a voice over in the style of the X Factor voice over?”
Britain’s Got Talent Voice Over
The answer to the first question is simple – he’s a chap by the name of Peter Dickson – and the answer to the second question is yes, most certainly. Peter has set the benchmark for the loud, proud, big sell British voice over and if you’ve watched UK television recently you will almost certainly have heard his voice even if you don’t watch Britain’s Got Talent or X Factor. He’s the voice on the promos for E4 TV and has also been heard on the BBC, Sky, Bravo, five and many other television stations. Along with the TV Peter has an amazing background in radio working with legends such as Steve Wright on BBC Radio 1 and launching the original Melody Radio (now Magic 105.4) in London.
