Amrit Sandhu, 46, from Ealing, west London,  was left feeling desperate in late 2019, as he struggled to make ends meet, splitting his time between his family’s ailing property business and odd jobs, when a voice over actor friend suggested he followed in his footsteps.

Amrit, who lives with his HR business partner wife Arrinder, 44, and their sons Taran, 19, and Karam, 16, said: ‘We’ve had it so hard in the past and things are now finally turning around for me and my family.
