    Where The Brittas Empire actors are now – from horse masseuse to Peppa Pig star

    Beloved BBC sitcom The Brittas Empire won legions of fans during its seven series based on the drama of the Whitbury New Town Leisure Centre, running from 1991 to 1997.
    Centred around eccentric leisure centre manager Gordon Brittas, the show is considered to be one of the best sitcoms from the BBC.
    But amid the news that the stars of the show are reuniting to mark the 30th anniversary of the hit series, what have the cast been up to over the last few decades?
    Daily Star has taken a look at the stars who rose to fame as part of the Brittas Empire, from main star Chris Barrie to his on-screen with Pippa Haywood, and where they are now.

    Disaster-prone Brittas, whose common phrase was “I have a dream”, had to deal with everything from OAP squash-court massacres to outbreaks of deadly diseases, electrocution of children, chainsaw decapitation and the chaining up of Seb Coe.
    He was even crushed to death by a water tank at the end of ­series 5 which was intended to be the last episode of the sitcom.
    But it was so popular it was resurrected for two further series.
    The eventual ending of The Brittas Empire – which revealed all the events of the show had been a Dallas-style dream – was panned.
    After the sitcom ended, Barrie starred in flop comedy A Prince Among Men, playing a former footballer turned entrepreneur.

    But he is best known as pompous hologram Arnold Rimmer in Red Dwarf, a role he has played since the show started in 1988. It was revived in 2009 by the Dave TV channel with a film version last year.
    He also played a butler in the Tomb Raider films alongside Angelina Jolie and has presented a series of documentaries about great machines.
    In 2014, he reprised his role as Brittas for a brief appearance in Little Mix’s Word Up! video for Sport Relief.
    A fan of vintage motorbikes and fast cars, the 60-year-old has been married twice and hastwo sons.
    Julia St John

    Actress St John, pictured left, went on to work with Harry Enfield on the comedian’s Harry Enfield and Chums show, as well as his follow-up series, Brand Spanking New Show.
    The 61-year-old also made regular appearances on A Touch of Frost and Casualty. But her last role was in a 2012 Bollywood movie.
    Pippa Haywood

    Pippa Haywood appeared in hit show Porridge, and also recently starred in BBC’s Bodyguard (Image: BBC Studios)
    Haywood played Brittas’ long-suffering and jittery wife Helen, who coped with her irritating husband via medication and ­extramarital affairs.
    Since then, she has appeared in many top TV series including Green Wing, Jonathan Creek, Silent Witness, Mr Selfridge and Scott and Bailey.
    In 2018, she was top cop Lorraine Craddock in hit drama Bodyguard and also plays the Duke of Hastings’ housekeeper, Mrs Colson, in Netflix smash Bridgerton. Mum of two Haywood, 59, also has a role in upcoming dementia drama Supernova with Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci.
    Harriet Thorpe

    Thorpe’s neurotic receptionist Carole was best known for ­keeping her three children shut in drawers and cupboards in the leisurecentre foyer.
    The actress, 63, has since appeared on TV most notably as dim magazine editor Fleur in smash hit sitcom Absolutely Fabulous and its 2016 film. She also starred in the Calendar Girls movie and has played stage roles in Les Miserables, Mamma Mia and Wicked.
    Thorpe is married with two children and currently hosts online chat show WonderBirds with Sherrie Hewson.
    Michael Burns

    Michael had small roles in shows such as Emmerdale and Casualty (Image: BBC Worldwide)
    Burns’ character Colin had all manner of skin complaints and a questionable attitude to hygiene but was unwavering in his devotion to his boss.
    The actor went on to do odd episodes of TV favourites including Emmerdale, Heartbeat, Casualty and Hollyoaks.
    Burns, 68, also had a one-off role on Doctors in 2017, where he played a drunk man in a bin.
    Jill Greenacre

    Enthusiastic and cheerful pool attendant Linda had a deep admiration for Mr Brittas, despite his many failings.
    Actress Greenacre, 55, has mainly appeared in short and lesser-known films and on stage, but also works as a shiatsu masseuse charging £40 per treatment.
    She also performs shiatsu massage on horses at £50 a time.
    Judy Flynn

    Judy Flynn has been seen on many TV shows – and also provided voices for Peppa Pig (Image: TV Grab)
    Flynn starred as fiery northerner Julie who was Brittas’ secretary but hated him. She went on to play various roles in Heartbeat, Holby City and more recently Hollyoaks, Ackley Bridge and Call The Midwife. She provided voices on Peppa Pig from 2009 to 2017.
    Flynn, 58, has also been a regular on daytime soap Doctors where she’s played six different characters in 13 years.
    Russell Porter
    Porter’s turn as pool attendant and chef Tim was his only foray into TV – he has since retired from the business. But he will be back for Thursday’s reunion event on Facebook.

    Tim Marriott
    Marriott left the TV world following his Brittas turn as pool attendant Gavin – who was in a relationship with bisexual chef Tim – and became director of drama at Eastbourne College.
    The 62-year-old dad of two has penned several works for the stage and now performs a PTSD-themed solo show called Shell Shock. More

    Kate Garraway warned by doctors that Derek Draper 'may never come out of coma'

    Piers Morgan issued a stark warning to those thinking of breaking the coronavirus rules that Kate Garraway ‘s husband Derek Draper “may never come out of his coma”, according to his doctors.
    Back in March, Derek , 53, was taken straight into intensive care after he’d contracted Covid-19, with his wife Kate explaining last week that his body was still “ravaged” from the deadly disease.
    This morning, Good Morning Britain host Piers, 55, who has been defiant throughout the pandemic with shaming those who opt to break the rules, pleaded with viewers to continue taking the restrictions seriously.
    To ensure that his message was loud and clear he used Derek’s situation as a harrowing example.

    “It’s hit a lot of people; 100,000 people or more have now lost their lives – think of how many family members they all have.

    “Multiply that, and you’re getting into millions of people directly affected by Covid-19.
    “We’ve got to take this seriously and we’ve got to get vaccinated as fast as possible. That’s the only way through this.”
    In other updates on the breakfast show, it was revealed that as a result of the virus Derek now has holes in his heart and lungs as well as losing a staggering eight stone in weight.

    On the lead up to festive period, Kate bravely spoke to the GMB hosts about her husband’s situation and opened up about her feelings surrounding a Christmas without Derek.
    The TV presenter admitted that she’d had to pull herself together after she’d began to reach “the end of her tether”.
    With emotions running high and feeling “physically low”, she explained: “Derek’s still ravaged from the effects of Covid from way back in March, his recovery is incredibly uncertain.

    “I’m trying to look for new things and new ways and talking to doctors about what we can do for him meanwhile people are still dying in extraordinary numbers – people that aren’t older and haven’t got underlying conditions, it’s unbearable.”
    Fortunately for Kate, she was able to sneak in a visit to the hospital with her two children, Darcey and Billy to see their seriously-ill father just before the UK was plunged into a new six week lockdown at the start of January. More

    When Tom was just 17 years of age, he became a dad, focusing on earning enough money to support baby Deaconn while the rest of his friends were out partying.
    Fatherhood came easily to the DJ, who grew up on a council estate in Leeds and left school at the age of 15.
    Once Deaconn was born, Tom committed himself entirely to parenting, working “every job” to help raise the youngster.
    Last November, he told Manchester Evening News: “As soon as I found out Deaconn was going to be born I stopped it all and I literally worked every job.

    “I’ve worked as a butcher putting the pork in pies on a conveyor belt, a bricklayer, I’ve worked in call centres.
    “I did anything I could to try and earn money legitimately to fund my son.”

    Havey, who was born with septo-optic dysplasia, autism and is believed to have characteristics of Prader-Willi Syndrome, never really got off to a great start with his dad.

    According to the My Crazy Life star, Harvey has only met Dwight on “a handful” of occasions and didn’t make contact when Harvey was seriously ill in intensive care last year.

    In an interview with Sky News back in 2009, the now retired sportsman even admitted that he wasn’t the best father, owning up to making “mistakes along the way” and wanting to “turn back the clock”.
    However in spite of his admission and guilt, according to Katie he still yet to make time for his son.

    Chloe Ferry seen without mask as she returns from Dubai trip after month away

    Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry was pictured without a face mask as she boarded a plane in Dubai.
    She took to Instagram to let fans know that she was finally returning to the UK after enjoying a month long trip to Dubai.
    The 25-year-old had originally explained that she would be spending a two month period in the UAE but revealed a few days ago that she would be cutting her travel plans short.
    Like many other social media influencers, who opted to leave the UK when the coronavirus Tier system was introduced, Chloe found herself in the firing line for backlash when heading to the Middle East originally.
    Current travel guidelines posted on the governments official website stipulates that Chloe must now isolate for a 10 day period.

    The former Geordie Shore star didn’t make things any better for herself after she seemingly forgot to wear her face mask while posting videos of her time at the airport and on the plane.
    She was seen relaxing in a posh first class seat as she enjoyed a refreshing beverage, and also posted videos of the lavish food she was eating.
    Emirates’ official website instructs all passengers to adhere to the rules which state: “You must wear a mask throughout Dubai International airport, during boarding, throughout your flight, and as you leave the aircraft.”

    However, this rule doesn’t apply while eating and drinking when face coverings can be removed.
    But when the star touched down in the UK, she was seen without her face mask again as she spoke to her fans via Instagram in the back of a cab.
    During the snippets filmed at Dubai Airport, Chloe wore a black padded jacket, and had her blonde tresses pulled back into a loose ponytail.
    Chloe told her legion of admirers that she’d been stressed at the airport as she’d “struggled to fill in the locator form” due to being dyslexic.

    The reality star looked hot and flustered as she explained that she’d had to get some support to fill in the information.
    It seems the MTV star did have a mask handy as she later popped this on to upload a quick selfie.

    She did also share segments while on-board the flight, including her entertainment and food that she’d enjoyed.
    International travel is banned, unless for legally permitted reasons such as work trips.
    Chloe had originally been planning to stay in Dubai for two months, but decided to cut it short to return home.
    Daily Star Online has contacted a rep for Chloe for comment. More
