One of England Rugby’s most familiar faces, Ben Cohen came to prominence in the successful Northampton side that lifted the Heineken Cup in 2000.

Ben became a regular fixture of the England and became a prolific try-scorer on the international stage. He is behind only Rory Underwood on the scoring charts and toured with the British & Irish Lions to Australia in 2001.
Outside of the game, Ben competed on Strictly Come Dancing before going on to win Channel 4’s The Jump.
