If you're in need of an honest, straight-talking kid to give you some hilariously worldly advice (of course you do!), Tom is your guy.

Unfortunately, there's also a recurring theme running through young Tom's life: his guardians have a habit of DYING TRAGICALLY.

Parents Mr C and Helen, half brother Max and stepmother Steph have all fallen foul of the Grim Reaper, and disaster seems to befall everyone in his orbit - just ask Esther, who he nearly killed with a cricket bat!

Now we're not saying Tom is the cause of these calamities. We're just suggesting you keep an eye on him. That's all.

About Ellis: This is Ellis' first TV role, and has so far helped to fill our trophy cabinet with several awards. Thanks, Ellis!
