The father and son have also featured in their own show Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad for three seasons. 

Barney has previously acted in Doctors and Law And Order and had a role in Guy Ritchie's 2017 film King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

Joanna Scanlan will play Bradley's onscreen wife Ma in The Larkins, while the role of their eldest daughter Mariette has gone to Bridgerton's Sabrina Bartlett.
