Earlier this year, he landed the main role of Cameron Mickelthwaite in BBC's Casualty. Bradley has passed his talents in presenting down to his son as the two are set to host the reboot of Gladiators.

The family are already linked to the iconic ITV show which aired from 1992 to 2000, as Bradley's wife and Barney's mum Donna Walsh was once a cheerleader on the programme. But while the Walsh's are firmly in the spotlight, Bradley has another child who prefers to stay out of the public eye.

The Blankety Blank presenter welcomed daughter Hayley Walsh from a previous relationship in 1982. Bradley and Hayley's mother, Debby Parker, were allegedly in a relationship in the eighties, but there were no reports confirming they were married.

Unlike the rest of her family who work in showbiz, Hayley's career is in reflexology. She trained at the London School of Reflexology.

Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is a type of massage technique involving the application of pressure to specific points on the feet, ears, and hands. Hayley and her partner Tom welcomed a baby boy in 2021.

She announced her pregnancy on her Instagram page dedicated to reflexology. Alongside a sign that said "On maternity leave", Hayley said: "Preparing for the baby's arrival."

Bradley couldn't hide his excitement at becoming a grandfather for the first time. He told Saga magazine: "I am a grandfather! My daughter and her husband Tom have had a baby boy who is coming up for five months old.

"It's been tricky as during lockdown no one could get to see their grandchildren. Thank God for FaceTime – it has kept people in touch." The former soap star added: "I'm going to be a brilliant grandfather because I've got this trick.

"When the baby grows into a toddler, make sure you spend plenty of time with them, feeding them ice cream and Coca-Cola and then give them back at just the right time and say to your children, 'There you are, that's what you were like'." Hayley, Tom and two-year-old Dax reportedly live in Hertfordshire.
