BOYS to MEN

David Platt

David was born in Weather­field on Christ­mas Day 1990. He may as well have been chris­tened Damien, judg­ing by the hor­rors he got up to in his late teens and early twen­ties, not least of which was push­ing mum Gail down the stairs. These days, he’s a sin­gle dad to Max and Lily and a much more well-rounded in­di­vid­ual, al­though how long he stays that way is any­one’s guess.

– when, fit­tingly,

New Kids On the Block were num­ber one in the charts. Steve got up to all man­ner of scams when he was younger, and even did time in prison. While he tends to stay on the right side of the law nowa­days, his six failed mar­riages tell us he can still be a bit of a plank.

ches­ney Brown

Was Ches­ney the cutest kid in Weather­field or what? Ac­tor Sam As­ton was 10 years old when he joined the soap in 2003 as Fiz’s lit­tle brother. Fast for­ward 14 years and Ches is now a par­ent him­self – to son Joseph, who’s cur­rently liv­ing in Por­tu­gal with his mum, Katy. ‘Peo­ple still see me as that lit­tle kid,’ says Sam. ‘I could have any sto­ry­line, and I’ll al­ways be seen as that kid.’

ty­rone DOBBS

Ty­rone was a trou­bled teen when he first came to Weather­field,

– hardly sur­pris­ing given his mum was ha­bit­ual crim­i­nal

Jackie Dobbs. But he soon be­came a man thanks to Jack and Vera Duck­worth, who raised him like he was one of their own. These days, Ty­rone

is a fam­ily man with a heart of gold.
