    Derek Martin

    Actor Derek Martin is on the show today. Better known as Charlie Slater from Eastenders Derek was born in Bow East London, he enjoyed his education and left school with good grades.

    At the age of 15 his first job was as an apprentice to an Estate Agents and Surveyors, after this he worked in the construction industry, soft drinks advertising. Having found little fullfillment in any of these careers he joined the RAF at 18, becomming a 'snow drop' or RAF military police. He eventually left the RAF with the rank of corporal, he then worked in a wood veneer facility and a brewery - which being a teetotaller he found somewhat unfullfilling.

    He started working at Smithfield Meat Market and left for a very short lived career as a proffesional gambler, he returned to work at Smithfield and married for the first time. Derek then started a career in motor-racing, his ambition was to be world champion.

    He gave up on this career due to personal pressures and eventually divorced his first wife. It was also during this period he fell foul of the law and found himself in Court No 1 of the Old Baily. He was on charges of Recieving and Larceny, but was found to be not guilty by a Jury of his peers. After this he decided to turn his hand to acting (after the strength of his recent performance).
