One of the star’s of a ground-breaking TV documentary spanning over 50 years has returned for the latest instalment.

Tony Walker, from Loughton, is one of the many people whom ITV chose follow growing up every seven years on their shoe ‘Up’.

Inspired by this Jesuit motto, the latest instalment of 63 Up aired its first episode last night.

Led by director Michael Apted throughout the decades, this unique, acclaimed series gives an insight into its original premise of asking whether or not our adult lives are pre-determined by our earliest influences and the social class in which we are raised.

First appearing on the documentary show back in 1964 the then seven-year-old Mr Walker said that he wanted to be a jockey.

The films followed him as he chased his dream but said at 14 that if he didn’t make it he would become a taxi driver.

By 21 he was on the knowledge and at 28 he owned his own cab.

ITV has followed Mr Walker as he married Debie and started a family.

At 49 they were filmed at their holiday home in Spain and at 56 Tony said he wanted to open a bar there.

When the series last saw Tony, he and his wife were looking after one of their grandchildren for their daughter. The couple talked about their marriage and their hopes for the future.

Where is Tony now? Do he and Debie still have a house in Spain? Did he gets his sports bar off the ground?

63 Up airs tonight at 9pm on ITV.
