Jeremy first appeared on television in 1996 as part of the fly-on-the-wall documentary series Airport, where he worked as the Ground Services Manager for Aeroflot - Russian Airlines. His manner easily made him the most high profile contributor of the programme, so much so that the BBC hired him to become a television presenter of light entertainment in his own right. Other programmes he has presented include The Toughest Job In Britain, Holiday and City Hospital. He also works for children's charitable organisations such as the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) and "When you wish upon a star". He also appeared in Moscow for the BBC's 2000 Today programme, broadcast over the turn of the millennium.
