Actor Sid Owen is most famous for playing EastEnders character Ricky Butcher, the loveable, hapless mechanic and long-suffering husband of Bianca. He played the character on and off for nearly 25 years until his recent departure in June 2012, making him one of the most recognisable faces on UK television. Sid previously ran a restaurant in France and became a published author in 2007 with his cookery book Life on a Plate: The Journey of an Unlikely Chef.
