Comedian Bobby Davro makes a breakthrough on the couch
Bobby Davro’s varied career has included hit comedy shows, playing Vinnie Monks in EastEnders, and taking part in reality shows.
But behind the success, there were problems…
‘My heyday was a fantastic time,’ Bobby tells celebrity therapist Mandy Saligari, ‘but I was still striving for my career and didn’t pay my wife enough attention.
‘We divorced and agreed to share all the things a family shares – birthdays, Christmas, holidays,’ explains the funny man, who has three daughters with his ex-wife, Trudi Jameson.
