Britain's Got Talent

Clegg was a contestant on the eighth series of Britain's Got Talent between April and May 2014. During his first audition which was aired on 10 May, Clegg did impressions of well-known people including Alan Carr, Marcus Bentley, Homer and Marge Simpson, Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell. After impressing the judges, he went through to the next round.

His next performance was during the semi-final round on 26 May. Once again, he did impressions; this time of Paul O'Grady, Peter Dickson, Alan Hansen, David Beckham, John Bishop, Paddy McGuinness, Ant & Dec and Michael McIntyre. He was in the top three in the public vote later that night, but after the judges failed to reach a majority, Clegg was eliminated leaving illusionist Darcy Oake to take the place in the Britain's Got Talent final.

On 4 June 2014, a few days before the final, it was announced that Clegg was chosen by the judges as the series' 'wildcard act' and given a spot in the final. In the Britain's Got Talent series 8 final, Jon Clegg performed impressions of Ant & Dec, Homer Simpson, Marge Simpson, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Sarah Millican, Keith Lemon, impressionist Jenson Zhu who competed in the series but did not make it to the final and Louis Walsh. Clegg finished in seventh place overall, and later stated that his father was his inspiration.

Clegg appeared in the 2016 series of Britain's Got Talent, during a performance which celebrated some of the best acts to take part in the last ten years of the show. The performance was organised by Ashley Banjo of Diversity.

Since 2015, he has voiced various characters in the ITV series Newzoids.

Since 2015 Clegg has toured Butlins and works all over the world on Cruise Ships for P&0 Cruises, Celebrity and Princess. And for Thomson Holidays at resorts in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. He also continues to perform in Pantomime every year.

Jon's father auditioned for New Faces in 1987, also doing impressions.

He is married to Tracy Clegg, the Entertainment Manager for P&O Cruises.
