Arthur turned to sport and wheelchair racing after a car accident that paralysed him from the waist down.
He trained alongside Mickey Bushell and won the Birmingham Half Marathon in 2009. After showing bags of potential in handcycling, he then transferred to the British Cycling Paralympic development squad before applying for Channel 4's talent search.

In the summer of 2013 he made his first breakthrough as a factual presenter on C4, using his passion for military history as a reporter for D-Day As It Happened and The Plane that Saved Britain.
