Poldark returns to BBC One this weekend, with Eleanor Tomlinson reprising her role as the fiery Demelza.

Known for his roles in such films as Footloose and Apollo 13, Kevin has also become a familiar face on UK TV screens of late thanks to his commercials for a certain mobile phone network.

But he has also released seven albums with his brother Michael that span folk, rock, soul and country – a fusion they have dubbed “Forosoco”.

In an interview last year, Bacon admittedhis celebrity status was useful to the band, saying it helped “get a few people in a few seats”.

“The job is for those people to leave, and the next time we come through town they say, you know what, I saw these guys, they’re actually pretty good.”

Watch the video for The Bacon Brothers’ latest single Broken Glass.
