Dean was born in April 1967 in Guisborough, North Yorkshire.
He started out as a singer songwriter in the late 1980s before realising he was awful and turned his hand to comedy writing. He's never looked back - mainly due to arthritic pain in his neck.
He was Ant and Dec's writer for 7 years penning the multi-award winning SMTV Live and Chums. He also writes on the console games LittleBigPlanet amongst many others.
His writing has seen him pen scripts for the likes of Stephen fry, Hugh Laurie, Rik Mayall, John Cleese and Harry Hill to name but a few.
He has 3 daughters Emily, Alice and Grace. He lives with his girlfriend Joanne Kitching.

‘I've always been a writer. At school I read out my stories every Friday afternoon to the entire school when the work-of-the-week was showcased. Nowadays it's wonderful when people come to me with their ideas and ask me to build on them, work with them, and make something great into something astounding.
With 27 years experience as a professional writer I have worked in many genres gleaning success in TV, games and books. Here’s to to next 27. I hope YOU are part of it.’
