Award-winning TV personality, chef, writer and fashionista, Gok Wan MBE is planning to take his 'Isolation Nation' show on tour of the UK in the spring of 2022, following a massive sold-out show in London this year.

The multi-talented forty-seven-year-old recently began his foray into music, motivated by his love for upbeat and soulful house music, releasing an energetic reworking of '90s club classic, Baby D's 'Let Me Be Your Fantasy'. The track, which features the familiar vocals of Kele Le Roc, hit the top spot on the main Apple Music chart just forty-eight hours after its release.

He's since curated, mixed and released his very own 'Isolation Nation' compilation album, via world-renowned dance label, Defected Records, which pre-sold over three thousand copies. Pretty impressive, we think you'll agree.

Catch Gok spinning a mix of disco beats and 90s bangers in Glasgow, Newcastle or Birmingham next year! Get your tickets now below...
