Edward is married to Sian and they live in Westcott Surrey, with their four children: Ben, Oliver, Elin and Tess, plus Tasha, their dog (along with 7 chickens, 2 guinea pigs and Alduin, the bearded dragon). A vegetarian family, they enjoy the irony of living in an old butcher's shop.

Sian is a full-time mum who is a lapsed librarian who supports Arsenal.

Ben (20) is an apprentice welder with Johnston Sweepers. He has inherited the Aston Villa-supporting gene from his dad and plays for Brockham football team. He is lapsed trombonist. 

Oli (18) is studying Geophysics at the University of East Anglia; he has also been awarded a music scholarship.  He supports Crystal Palace.

Elin (14) enjoys singing, dancing, acting, reading, and she supports Arsenal (like her mum). 

Tess (12) passed grade 3 at the age of 8 on the trumpet, before changing to Cello - she is currently working towards grade 5. She plays lots of sports including squash, hockey, netball, rounders, football and rugby.
