Comedian Nick Hancock, best known for hosting BBC sport quiz They Think It's All Over, has taken a job as marketing director for a mortgage broker.
Nick Hancock said he would continue working in TV and comedy
He begins his new role at South Yorkshire-based Earth Mortgages, founded by two friends, in September.
"Many people have just one career," he said. "I'm lucky - I continue to be active in television and comedy but now I'm also getting down to business."
He will be replaced as host of They Think It's All Over by Lee Mack.
Hancock began as president of the Cambridge Footlights, the university comedy troupe that also spawned Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson.
His first big TV role was presenting Room 101 before presiding over They Think It's All Over for 10 years.
