Gok first came to fame in the UK as a fashion stylist, crashing on to the nation’s screens with an infectious personality that belied his deep understanding of fashion and style. His first TV series for Channel 4, How To Look Good Naked, was a big success and paved the way for a further six series.
Gok’s TV shows for 2016 include: Gok’s Fill Your House for Free (Up-cycling and home renovation), Gok’s Lunchbox (Cooking show), Fearne and Gok – Off the Rails (Fashion Chatshow). He also regularly presents the fashion segment on ITV’s This Morning and has co-presented on a number of occasions.
Some of Gok’s previous shows include: Gok’s Fashion Fix with a follow on series called Gok’s Clothes Roadshow; Get The Look For Less. And for all those lonely hearts out there looking for love and a makeover, Gok’s Style Secrets didn’t disappoint. Hotel GB was brought to life with many a ‘Gok-tail’ served as Mr Wan took bar-tending duties by the scruff of the neck.
We also saw Gok exploring his family’s roots and what it means to be an Anglo-Asian in his documentary Made in China. He has also filmed a moving documentary on child obesity Too Fat Too Young. Gok explored the modern day issues our teenagers face in a three-part series called Gok’s Teens: The Naked Truth.
He also went back to what his family does best in his cookery show Gok Cooks Chinese. Gok has presented the fashion item for Channel 4’s Horse Races at Ascot, Aintree and Goodwood for a number of years.
Many of Gok’s fashion and style TV series sold worldwide affording him international recognition, which led to appearances on the Today show in the U.S., as well as TV work in Australia and Europe. In the spring of 2016 he finished filming a documentary for National Geographic exploring Chinese food around the globe, entitled Gok’s Chinese Takeaway (soon to be aired worldwide).
Between 2013-2015 Wan was the Style & Quality Ambassador for Australian brand, Target. As part of his role, he presented an Australian TV show titled Target, Style The Nation, this one-hour program shows Gok transform the appearances of five women. Gok presented a Polish TV Series called Stylowe Rewolucje Goka (Gok’s Style Revolutions) for TVN. It aired in Poland in September 2014 and was similar in format to his previous UK show, How To Look Good Naked.
His on screen triumphs led to six book deals, including his autobiography Through Thick and Thin, as well as the accompaniment to Gok Cooks Chinese.
He crystallized his position as a true champion for women by collaborating with Sainsbury’s to create his own women’s wear range, which ran into 24 collections! Gok is now Style Ambassador for Tu at Sainsbury’s, a role that he adores and fully champions.
Gok is a keen supporter for a number of charities including his role as Ambassador for the Princes Trust, and Stonewall.
It is Gok’s style credentials combined with his ability to appeal to a broad audience that have made him a popular choice with brands looking to collaborate with him for his impressive design skills, as well as securing his professional endorsement as an ambassador (which amongst others have included Activia, Vodafone, Boots, Specsavers and Dove).
