He began acting aged 15 in Médico de familia, and then in La casa de los líos (1996) and Al salir de clase (1998).[2][3] Later on he presented TV programs such as Verano noche, Humor a toda marcha and Desperado Club Social between 1999 and 2002.[4][5] He also dubbed the videogame Little Big Planet.[6] He was known as the reporter of Caiga quien caiga (2005-2007), shown by Telecinco and presented by Manel Fuentes.[7]

Before finishing Caiga quien caiga, he was chosen to present Pasapalabra on 16 July 2007, which was initially shown by Antena 3 replacing Jaime Cantizano.[8][9] For nine years, the program received the highest audience in Spain.[10] and it was awarded for Premios Ondas (2008) and several TP de Oro.[11][12] He has combined Pasapalabra with other programs, like the reality show Operación Tony Manero (2008),[13]Tú sí que vales (2008-2013),[14]Supervivientes (2009-2011), El Reencuentro (2011) and Acorralados (2011).[15][16]

In 2010 he published the book Sin-vergüenzas por el mundo, in which he describes his career as a reporter.[17] In 2011 he starred in the film Ni pies ni cabeza alongside Jaydy Michel and Blanca Jara and directed by Antonio del Real.[2]

On July 2015 he presented the talent show ¡Vaya fauna!, in which animals were the stars.[21] Several animal associations sued the program after showing animals which cannot be domesticated so they would have been domesticated with physical maltreatment.[22][23] The presenter Frank Cuesta uploaded a video on YouTube titled "Mensaje para Christian Gálvez",[24] in which supported the associations and considering the program promoted the animal cruelty.[25] In that video, Cuesta requested Gálvez to state against the program, but Mediaset and Gálvez stated in favour.[23]
