Larry Lamb Talks Candidly About His Father

Weeknights exclusively on Watch

Larry Lamb has candidly spoken out about his relationship with his father, when appearing as a guest on Richard & Judy’s New Position. In the show, which airs at 8pm on Tuesday 2nd December on Watch, Lamb describes his father Ronald as “evil”.

Lamb describes how similar his Eastenders alter ego Archie Mitchell was to his father saying that it was “exactly the sort of trips my father used” and that he “spent a lot of time with a shrink talking about this.”

Lamb goes on to say that he confronted his father about it all saying:

“He had wrecked so many people’s lives, including mine, and as I said to him at the time, ‘if you want to start playing the truth game with me, now’s not a good time because I’m carrying forty nine years. I remember, forty nine years of it with me, I’ve had you for forty nine years. And if you want to hear the truth boy you’re going to hear the truth, so just lean off.'”

Asked if he had spoken to him since he replied “no, ever” and also admitted that he “absolutely didn’t go to his funeral.”
