Lucien Laviscount is best known for playing the dashing schoolboy in the popular soap opera Waterloo Road.
He played Jonah Kirby, who quickly fell in love with his high school teacher, Francesca Montoya, and soon created a disastrous romance.
The relationship quickly turned serious when Francesca discovered she was pregnant and the couple rushed to Gretna Green to get married, but they were soon greeted by police at the registry office.
Lucien played the role on the BBC soap between 2010 and 2011 – shortly after his stint on the ITV series Coronation Street as Ben Richardson, Sophie Webster’s short-term boyfriend.
The 30-year-old has since bagged a string of highly recognizable roles under his belt, which have contributed to his staggering net worth of around £5.7million, according to IdolNetWorth.
Lucien has even dabbled in his fair share of reality TV after starring in series eight of Celebrity Big Brother in 2011.

More recently, the Burnley-born star has been recognized for her flashy role in Netflix hit Emily in Paris.
Lucien plays Alfie, the charming banker love of Lily Collins’ character Emily Cooper in season 2.
Their romantic timeline initially saw their playful but contentious relationship as Alfie continued to challenge Emily to have fun, but as their friendship grew, so did their attraction to one another.
As the duo begin dating, their potential relationship is jeopardized by their mutually limited time in Paris.
Lucien’s appearance on the Netflix series in 2020 was originally the time when the actor revealed he’s practically unrecognizable since his time on the soap.
The brunette hunk shared a plethora of selfies and stunning photos on Instagram, showing he’s worlds apart from his previous characters.
The former Coronation Street star continues to reveal his incredible body transformation and shares that he’s the proud owner of a sparkling six-pack.
The brunette hunk wowed his celebrity friends and fans alike when he revealed he’s sporting pulsating muscles.
Lucien is optimizing his good looks – he knowingly has an expertise in flirting – after shunting a series of romances into the public spotlight.
He has worked with a number of celebrity women including Amy Childs and Little Mix members – Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock dated Lucien in 2012 – but that’s not the only member of the band he’s been linked with.

Lucien’s romantic engagement with Jesy originally sparked last year when the pair were photographed snuggling up during a night out in London.
Jesy, who bitterly parted ways with Little Mix, looked utterly loved up next to Lucien as she rocked his face in snaps she was said to be “shamed” of.
However, a source told The Sun at the time: “Jesy is single. She and Lucien were at different clubs on different nights but shared a rickshaw ride around London.
“They didn’t kiss and now that Jesy has seen the photos she is absolutely embarrassed.
“They’re not boyfriends or girlfriends — they just bumped into each other when we were going out.”
Lucien’s long string of romances with famous stars doesn’t end with Jesy.

The busy actor was even reported to have once attacked Sam Faiers and Gemma Merna at the same time while he was dating Kerry Katona at the same time.
During Lucien’s stint on reality show Celebrity Big Brother, he famously flirted with Kerry – who was 12 years his senior.
They flirted indoors, shared a kiss and snuggled together on the sofas.
As they left the house, Lucien and Kerry took part in a photo shoot with OK! where he insisted he would marry the Atomic Kitten star.
“There was definitely a lot of sexual tension,” Kerry said of their time as roommates.
While Lucien and Kerry discussed marriage, they only met briefly after the show before Kerry decided he was too young for her

She added, “He’s one of those guys that gives you a kiss and a hug, a cup of tea, puts flower petals in the bathtub — the little things I would want in a husband.”
“She’s not too old for me! I have something for older women,” Lucien insisted.
“I like women who know where they stand. When I’m there [Kerry]I don’t feel like there’s an age difference at all.”
But their romance didn’t last, and in a later column, Kerry called Lucien a “little kid” and claimed she didn’t want to tie the knot and “take his childhood away from him.”
The acting hunk will bring a host of new skills to the table as he brings his sporting know-how to the pitch to compete at Soccer Aid this Sunday.
Alex will join the likes of Usain Bolt, Damian Lewis, Kem Cetinay and Liam Payne at the annual charity game
Soccer Aid takes place on Sunday 12 June and will be broadcast live on ITV, kicking off at 19.30.
