Andy Torbet is an extreme adventure sportsman and explorer, stuntman, film-maker and presenter often utilising his high levels skills as a deep and cave diver, freediver, skydiver and outdoorsman.

To date he has presented on 18 television series for BBC1, BBC2, Children’s BBC, Discovery US and History, written hundreds of articles for magazines like FHM, Men’s Fitness, ScubaDiver, Climber and Skydive and newspapers including The Mail on Sunday and The Telegraph as well as one book- ‘Extreme Adventures’ and performed stunts on movies including James Bond ‘No Time To Die’. Currently, Andy is working on a 6 part series with National Geographic, with big visually impressive locations that tie into some of the biggest name-recognition moments and characters in European history.

Andy co-developed and presented CBBC series, Beyond Bionic which aired in February 2018. The series was high octane and fast moving, as it saw Andy attempt to match, if not beat, the super-powers of animals using engineering and ingenuity. In primetime, Andy co-presented Titanic's Tragic Twin: The Britannic Disaster with Kate Humble for BBC One, and landmark series Britain's Ancient Capital: Secrets of Orkney for BBC Two. He’s a regular on The One Show and Coast.

Since 2020, Andy has also been a key part of the hugely successful Fully Charged, and Fully Charged: Live, a YouTube channel focusing on electric vehicles and renewable energy.

Andy spent 10 years in the British Forces as a Diver, Paratrooper and Bomb Disposal Officer. During his time he commanded the Army’s Underwater and Airborne Bomb Disposal Teams as well as the High Risk Search Team of the Maritime Counter Terrorism Unit and deployed on operations in Bosnia, Kosovo, Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan.  Andy's public speaking is full of tales of risk, fear and resilience, honed from a lifetime working in high threat, high risk environments

Andy is an accomplished and respected underwater explorer with a high level of skill and experience in deep, technical and cave diving which has taken him all over the globe. Using everything from the latest technology in mixed gases and rebreather to old fashioned SCUBA, he has mapped new submerged cave systems, discovered a number of lost shipwrecks from WW2 merchant-mans in the cold, dark water of the English Channel to 18th Century warships off uninhabited islands in Southern Patagonia. There is no environment more hostile and inhospitable to human life on Earth than underwater and only a few elite divers in the world can operate in the huge cave systems and extreme depths Andy explores.

With a list of stunt and extreme qualifications as long as your arm, Andy is also a professionally qualified climber and mountaineer, kayak-guide and accomplished skydiver including performing a High Altitude High Opening jump from 28,000 feet for a science project filmed by the BBC and racing a Peregrine Falcon, the fastest animal on Earth, in free-fall achieving a win with speeds in excess of 240mph.

With a degree in zoology and diploma in archaeology, as well as being a member of MENSA, he has an interest in a variety of academic and social subject, but he is an explorer at heart and the darkness of the undiscovered forever beckons.

Andy is a patron of number charities including, The Felix Fund, Deptherapy and The Oliver Ridley Project. He is also a brand ambassador for Bailey of Bristol and SEALIFE.
