Simon played ladies' man Freddie Mainwaring in the late 1980s. And he ended up dating his screen girl in real life!
Simon Vaughan DOB: 13 January 1970

PLACE OF BIRTH: Kingston-Upon-Thames

TV: THE SOUTH BANK SHOW (LWT); Fred Mainwaring in GRANGE HILL (BBC 1987-88)

THEATRE: Fleance in MACBETH (Thorndike, Leatherhead)

FAMILY: Simon's mum was a nursery school teacher and he has two sisters, Claire and Lucy. He also has two stepsiblings - Jane and Julian.

YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW... Simon and Fiona Lee-Fraser, who played Fred's screen girlfriend Laura Reagan, were an item in real life! He also insists he is completely different to ladies' man Fred - when asked by No. 1 magazine how he and Fred were alike, he replied "We look the same!"

WHERE IS HE NOW...? Possibly doing voice-over work, but I haven't seen him on TV since Grange Hill.

Freddie was incredibly vain, but has time been kind to Simon? Click here to see what he looks like in 2006.
