He explained: "The producers were worried that with the Olympics being held in LA that year, it would create havoc for shooting our show as we were always on location for each episode. From downtown LA to Cucamonga from Hancock Park to the Queen Mary, we travelled each and every day. I had a black Corvette and I would head out early in the morning with my Thomas guide beside me trying to figure out how to get to the location.

Pierce continued: "This photo was taken at Ashford Castle, I have no idea what the scene was about. But I loved my Louis Copeland bespoke suit of Irish tweed. I still have it…of course it doesn't fit.

"Little did I know that one day I would get married to my darling love Keely Shaye in Ashford Castle… August 4th 2001.

Speaking of their meeting, Pierce later told People he couldn't get enough of Keely from the moment he laid eyes on her.

"Wherever I went in the world I missed her, and I'd send her tickets to come so we could be together. We just seemed to fit," he said, adding: "I found a great woman in Keely Shaye. Not if I searched a million times over would I find one as good."
