China has also appeared on various radio shows. He was educated at King Edward's School, Witley, and holds a degree in Engineering Product Design from London South Bank University.

China is managing director of his own company, Cummfy Banana Limited, which was set up in March 1999 to design and manufacture unique vehicles for advertising, corporate promotional work and special occasions such as weddings and proms.

China held the Guinness World Record for 'fastest furniture' driving a sofa, at 92 mph, beating the old record at 82 mph, which he also held. This was broken by Perry Watkins in 2013 who drove his dining table on a race track reaching a high speed of 113.8mph.

The double-deck cars in Top Gear were also manufactured by China.
