Lloyd is also a classically trained choral singer can often be heard performing with the choirs of Westminster Abbey, St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle and various other London groups. He said: “This is the first year that I'm doing a show where there's no real theme. I just want it to be funny. I'm harking back to where I used to watch Lee Evans and Lee Mack.
“They were just funny. I want people to leave their worries and woes at the door. There's always singing in my show, but a lot of people don't know that I sing so they come along and they're just absolutely baffled at this little fella belting out an opera oratorio.”
Lloyd was recently one of the first national anthem singers to sing the new anthem at various football matches around the country. He is currently appearing in several new television shows including the new series of Bad Education (BBC 3) and the drama series Nolly (ITV) about the famous soap opera Crossroads, playing the part of Paul Henry- the actor who portrayed the popular role of Benny in the series. Lloyd is also appearing in the Channel 4 comedy Everyone Else Burns, which follows a hyper-religious family navigating their way through the modern world whilst avoiding eternal damnation.
He has just launched a new comedy podcast Fit and Proper with fellow comedian Rhys James, where they invite a famous guest to take over a football club and rebuild it however they like, from changing the kit and the mascot to insisting all the players have a moustache for no reason. Lloyd also co-hosted Soccer AM for Sky with Tom ‘Fenners’ Fendley and Jimmy Bullard, and co-hosted Netflix comedy-entertainment show Flinch with Seann Walsh and Desiree Birch.
He also fronted the documentary Can You Beat the Bookies?, in which he explored the gambling industry.
