Ron Sheppard has enjoyed a long career in entertainment, and has been tour manager to Sir Norman Widsom and mentor to Eastender's star Shane Ritchie. He is also the man the Sun newspaper dubbed 'Lord of the Wedding Rings' after his eighth marriage.

But behind the laughter lay a frightening secret that Ron had kept for half a century - a secret that ruined his childhood and deeply wounded his adult relationships.

He had been a victim of sexual abuse as a child. Ron told no-one. His abuser was a family friend... not only a local businessman, but a respected Councillor. Ron was silenced by threats, and the fear that no-one would believe him over his seemingly upstanding tormenter.

Later, as Ron tried to forget, and forged a career as a Pontin's blue coat entertainer, he struggled with personal relationships. He saw his marriages fail one by one, and began to wonder if he could ever face his past and find happiness.

Then, one day, he wrote a letter to a stranger... a letter that would change his life, and give him the chance of a happy future. This is the inspirational true story of Britain's Most Married Man.
