But following his father Sid Perks' sudden death, which eventually led to his mum's boyfriend Kenton Archer moving out, the poor lad went off the rails. Drunkenness, truanting and vandalism soon followed.

It took a friend's car crash in a stolen car, which he only narrowly avoided being part of, to help him come to his senses. 

His mum Kathy found it hard to accept that A levels and university weren't the right course for Jamie. But he's very happy training as a tree surgeon. The money's not great, but he supplements it with pot-washing work at The Bull.
