OF A SURVIVOR
YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW...
Lee's mum Maureen was one of the chaperones on Grange
Hill. Although Lee did not star in Grange Hill until 1982,
a photo of him featured in the 1981 Grange Hill Annual,
in a feature about the Anna Scher theatre.
Foundation Boy's School
Lee swapped acting for a career in the ring after Grange
Hill, but sadly a car crash ended his sporting dreams.
FAME COSTS... There were
several downsides to appearing in Grange Hill for Lee. He
was once beaten up because of the show, and was ejected freom
the British Museum after being chased by a mob of screaming
...ON THAT ROMANCE Unfortunately
there was never any romance in real life between Lee and Melissa
Wilks (Jackie Wright). However, Lee fancied Melissa like mad,
which is why they were paired up on screen. These days, Lee
has not married but is in a relationship.
TOP OF THE FLOPS... Lee's
brother sang on Keith Harris' hit single Orville's Song in
the 1980s. Both Orville's Song and Just Say No! were voted
the worst top 10 songs of all time, prompting mum Maureen
to comment "I can't believe I've got two sons who were
part of two of the worst records ever"...(!)
WHERE IS HE NOW? Running
a key cutting shop in London. Lee learned the trade while filming
Grange Hill, and opened his business six years ago.
