Although he enjoyed amateur dramatics as a young man, it wasn't until he was 29 that Ricky started his training as an actor. He landed the role of Garry Hobbs in the BBC soap EastEnders in 2000, and during his time on the show, has certainly had his fair share of emotional storylines about marriages, divorces and even paternity tests!
Ricky is taking part in the seventh series of Strictly Come Dancing, and will be dancing with Erin Boag.
