In November 2014, Gurmit announced that he would leave the entertainment industry at the end of his full-time television career at Mediacorp – after exactly 20 years. Gurmit shared that he planned to spend more time with his family and would take on artiste engagements on a more selective basis.
Born to a Punjabi Indian father Chainchal Singh Virk and a Chinese–Japanese mother, Gurmit was brought up as a Sikh, but converted to Christianity in 1985. Gurmit Singh studied in Outram Secondary School during his secondary school years.
In 2013, Gurmit was nominated for the Best Actor prize at the 1st Golden Wau Awards, aimed at promoting Chinese-language Malaysian films, for his role in Phua Chu Kang The Movie (2010).

Making his debut in the variety show Live on 5 in 1994, he then became the host and lead actor of sitcom Gurmit’s World. The second season of Gurmit’s World, in which Gurmit portrayed his ‘relatives’ in a series of skits (unlike the first season where he played a wide assortment of mostly non-recurring characters), featured the first appearance of a character named Phua Chu Kang. The Singlish-based spin-off sitcom Phua Chu Kang Pte Ltd in 1997 made Gurmit a popular icon in the recent years, not only in Singapore, but also in neighbouring countries (especially culturally similar Malaysia).
