. Born in 1954 in Staffordshire, England, he studied for three years at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, Glasgow, Scotland, before starring in numerous films and television programs.

Fleet has appeared in a wide variety of radio dramas and comedies. In perhaps one of his best known roles, between 2000 and 2004, Fleet played the painfully upright and decent Captain Brimshaw in Revolting People, a BBC Radio 4 comedy set in pre-revolutionary America. He also appeared in the radio legal sitcom Chambers which later moved onto television.
On television, he played the role of the dim-witted Hugo Horton in the British series The Vicar of Dibley.
