The actor, who is perhaps best-known for his iconic role in the show, said of the reboot: "I gleefully anticipate sharing the next chapter in the continuing journey of Dr Frasier Crane."

The classic comedy show, which was a spin-off from Cheers, last aired 17 years ago, and many of the stars have moved on to further their acting careers and grow their families over the years. Meet the families and children of the main cast of Frasier here…

Kelsey Grammer

Kelsey Grammer has enjoyed huge success in his acting career, winning five Primetime Emmy Awards thanks to his part in Frasier. Away from TV and film, however, his personal life has faced many tragedies.

In 1968 when Kelsey was 13, his father was killed in a home invasion and less than ten years later, his younger sister Karen was brutally attacked and murdered when she was just 18. Kelsey also lost two half-brothers in a scuba diving accident in 1980.

The award-winning actor's love life has also seen many ups and downs. Kelsey has been married four times and has seven children and one grandchild.

Kelsey's third marriage to Camille Donatacci was perhaps his most profile. The pair were married from 1997 until 2010. In 2011, Kelsey married his fourth wife Katye Walsh and later went on to welcome three children together.

John sadly died in 2018

He's said in the past: "I was never very mature in my relationships with women. First sign of conflict, I was gone. Wouldn't discuss it, because I was afraid it would lead to an argument." Sadly, John passed in 2018 from cancer.
