Geoffrey Hughes has acted in a wide variety of television series for many years. His first major TV role was in Coronation Street (1960), and having left the soap after nine years he managed to steer away from the traditional career slumps suffered by many ex-soap actors.
It's not hard to see why. Whilst often typecast as the "loveable rogue" type character, he is simply a superb actor. Whether it be the slowish Onslow in Keeping Up Appearances (1990), Twiggy in the The Royle Family (1998), or the affable Vernon Scripps in Heartbeat (1992), Hughes is a man who knows how to play a part which wins the affection of television audiences.
Aside from television, he has featured in many stages performances and continues to be a busy actor both on screen and on stage.
