Describing being a grandfather as 'very, very nice' he said: "I’ll just be glad when they grow up and call me granddad or grandpa of whatever and I can take them to the cinema or take them to the zoo, go for a walk with them."

Frank’s well-documented struggle with bipolar is now firmly under control. He credits daily fitness training, healthy eating and a positive outlook with turning his wellbeing around. "It’s the best I’ve ever felt. I’ve been medication-free for three years," he said.

Frank is such a proud grandfather

Rachel, who Frank walked down the aisle at her wedding to childhood sweetheart Bobby just over a year ago, says: "A few years ago, when it all looked a bit bleak, I didn’t think we’d be in this position. I never thought we’d regain our family like it is now. It’s so nice to have us all healthy."
