Before the pandemic, the star was in the cast of a play at the Liverpool Royal Court Theater, but when he learned he would not receive government support after the production was canceled, he took a job as a Hermes courier driver.

However, he now works as a carpet fitter in the family business with brothers Darren and Robin after losing his father to cancer last November.

He previously said OK! magazine: “Dad has been a carpet maker all his life. He taught my brothers how to do it.

“When I first started out, I actually went to work in my father’s old uniform. He always said that you can find a way out of everything; keep my head up – and that’s what I did. “

Happy Couple: Ray, who lives in Liverpool, is now engaged to longtime girlfriend Emily Ashley.
