Because nothing is ever easy in Chester…

A first look at Edward reveals the surgeon couldnt be more different than his loveable son, which means there will be even more drama in store.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting Joe McGann who is coming in to play Tonys dad, Edward.

In 2020 we celebrate our 25th anniversary, so what better way than by getting to know some more of Tonys family? I have to warn you though, Edward is definitely here to ruffle a few feathers! Heres to the next twenty-five years!
