JOHN FORGEHAM - Frank Cassidy

John Henry George Forgeham (born 14th May 1941 –  died 10th March 2017) is a British actor. He is probably most famous for playing Frank Laslett in the ITV series Footballers' Wives.

In 2004 he appeared in the second series of the ITV weight loss show, Celebrity Fit Club, he replaced Freddie Starr as team captain, but was demoted 5 weeks later, the role was taken by James Whitaker. In 2006, he was exposed for indulging in lewd acts on a web cam AKA cyber sex, in a similar type of incident to the much more highly publicised scandal surrounding actor Leslie Grantham two years earlier, during which he slagged off fellow co-stars Zoe Lucker, Laila Rouass and others and claimed the only reason he was in Footballers wives was for the money.
John died from internal bleeding after breaking a collarbone after falling out of bed at his home in Worthing, West Sussex on 10th March 2017, aged 75 years.
