Ben Freeman

The eldest of five siblings (three younger sisters and a younger brother), living in Slough, Berkshire, Freeman went to St. Bernard's Convent School (now St. Bernard's Catholic Grammar School). While at school Freeman took a part-time acting course over a school half-term holiday and was spotted by an agent, who signed him up. Freeman's first role was playing Chris Longworth in children's school soap "Grange Hill".


After leaving Grange Hill, when Emmerdale decided to recast the character of Scott Windsor from incumbent Toby Cockerell in 1998, Freeman won the role of the womanising car mechanic Scott.


Freeman has had a tabloid reported personal life. He dated Emmerdale co-star Amy Nuttall until she broke off their relationship with him in 2004 for cheating on her.


He then dated model Cassie Sumner, who was later reported to be a £3,000-a-night vice girl who had dated Chelsea F.C. footballer Michael Essien. In 2005 girlfriend Montana Manning, 17, of girl band Cookie broke off their relationship after Freeman cheated on her with a fan.
