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 hamsters and 3 guinea pigs). 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 (18) works for WH Smith. He has inherited the Aston Villa-supporting gene from his dad and plays for Brockham football team. He is lapsed trombonist. 

Oli (16) plays football for Holmbury and Westcott Wolves.  He has passed his grade 8 violin with a distinction and plays with the Surrey County Youth Orchestra; he also supports Crystal Palace.

Elin (13) has just joined a speed-skating club and also plays netball. She enjoys art, plays the clarinet and supports Arsenal (like her mum). Her favourite animal is a fox.

Tess (10) plays the trumpet (like her dad) and has passed her grade 3; she is also working towards grade 4 cello. She goes to Guides, loves animals - especially dogs - and supports Crystal Palace like her brother. She loves all sports and plays squash, hockey, netball and football, as well as going to a gymnastics club.
