Peaky Blinders pair on Canal St

Peaky Blinders pair on Canal St

This autumn, Peaky Blinders returns on BBC Two. The fourth series will introduce some new characters – two of whom will feature big as a double act on screen. Off screen, they're even more like a double act. Please be introduced to Chris Bragan and Geoff Holland.

They only met in the past couple of years. Liverpudlian Chris is a gay man and Mancunian Geoff, a fitness fanatic. Since then, their friendship has blossomed.

Their journeys almost mirror each other's. Born in the North West, they struggled in their respected schools through intense bullying. Chris was coming to terms of being homosexual and initially in denial, had a relationship with a woman and had a child in his teens. Geoff meanwhile was bullied for being a 'lanky' 6"2 and skinny boy.

Fast forward many years later, both find themselves in a similar scenario. Both are on the cusp of acting success. Earlier this year, Chris's character beaten up Aaron Dingle in Emmerdale while both in prison. Ironic, seeing as Chris himself shares the same sexuality as Aaron. Geoff in the past 18 months alone has featured in Cold Feet, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks. 

Both Chris and Geoff has spent their lives overcoming doubters and are now coming the other side. Peaky Blinders will be the beginning of them. They are available to host some fantastic nights and meet & greets across Canal Street and beyond.

If interested, please contact their agent John Price (T. 07968 476241, E. pr@johnpriceimage.com).
