Biography

Andrew Collins (born March 4, 1965, Northampton) is an English journalist, scriptwriter, and broadcaster.

After studying epic graphic design at Chelsea School of Art, Collins started writing for New Musical Express in 1989, subsequently taking up editorship of Q in 1995, having worked on Select and Empire (where he was briefly editor for three issues in 1995, before moving over to Q). He also formed a double-act with fellow music journalist Stuart Maconie, presenting the Sony Award-winning BBC Radio 1 show Collins & Maconie’s Hit Parade, after forging their style on a daily comedy strand called “The Grin” on Mark Goodier’s BBC Radio 1 drivetime show, and Collins & Maconie’s Movie Club on ITV. He is also a very recognizable face on many list shows that are shown on BBC/ITV/Channel 4 (e.g. The Most Annoying Pop Songs We Love to Hate). He stated on BBC Three’s The Most Annoying TV Programmes We Love To Hate that he had appeared on 37 such list shows (actually an approximate figure), and that this, the 37th, was going to be his last one. He subsequently appeared on Heroes Unmasked on BBC Three. He devoted a full chapter to the experience of appearing as a talking head on list/nostalgia shows in his book That’s Me in the Corner.
