Having run for 12 years, produced more than 120 episodes and been one of the most-watched sitcoms of the Noughties, My Family was a BBC juggernaut.
But while Robert Linsday and his on-screen wife Zoe Wanamaker were already established actors, the stars who played their offspring weren’t quite as well known.
Here’s what each of them have been up to since the show ended in 2011.

A number of TV gigs came up after that before Kris had a second bite at the fame cherry with Death In Paradise, in which he played DI Humphrey Goodman from 2014.
In February this year, he announced he was leaving the detective drama – filmed in the Caribbean – to return to the UK as he wanted to spend more time with his wife Hannah and two young children, Thomas and Elsie.
Kris took a turn as Colin in 2003’s Love Actually (Photo: Universal Studios) “Death in Paradise has been an incredible experience, six months every year filming on a tropical island in the sunshine – what’s not to love!” he said at the time.
“Humphrey was socially awkward and clumsy but also brilliant, I’ll miss him but it’s time to hand over to someone new and spend more time with my family.”
However, a source revealed to Mirror Online that Kris was actually returning home so he could become the new Doctor Who .
While the BBC has yet to confirm the news, our insider said Kris will make his first appearance as the holder of the Sonic Screwdriver towards the end of series 10.

Gabriel – who played Michael Harper in the long-running hit BBC sitcom – announced a break in his acting career so he could focus on becoming a human rights barrister.
The 30-year-old Londoner, who was once tipped to be Harry Potter before losing that role to Daniel Radcliffe, embarked on a three-year Philosophy course at King’s College London.

“Making people laugh is important, but I wanted to pursue a career which makes a difference and to transfer my acting skills into performance in the court room.

Since the show ended Thompson appeared in film The Lost Choices in 2014 after three years away from the limelight.

Bit parts in Torchwood and Midsomer Murders were followed by a long stint as Lorraine Donnegan in Waterloo Road between 2009 and 2013.
She then got brought on as Julia in Silent Witness last year.
Daniela played Lorraine on Waterloo Road for four years (Photo: BBC) Daniela is currently filming for Heidi: Queen of the Mountain, which is being based on the beloved children’s books about a little girl growing up in the Swiss Alps.
In it, she plays Gertrude opposite Bill Nighy as Grandpa and Sam Allison in the title role.
