Tony, as a seven-year-old, wanted to be a jockey. He became a cabbie instead. Still, it was a good life for an “Eastender.” In 42 Up, Tony showed viewers around the solid middle-class home he shared with his wife, Debbie, and their three children. But he never quite gave up dreams of glamour — embracing his role in the series and even trying to break into show business. 49 Up reveals how Tony and Debbie, now grandparents, saved their marriage from infidelity and just what has become of Tony’s acting ambitions.
