Knew Michael/Mickey slightly, I was at Maidenhead Grammar with his brother Graham, a very good rugby player. My late brother Robert/"Bob" was a mate and Mickey came to his wedding on a Thames pleasure cruiser in about 1987. I noted a previous comment mentioning Windsor Hell's Angels - Bob had connections with them too. He died of Covid in 2020. Hope Mickey and Graham are well.

would love to get in touch one way or another with michael, turns out i'm now the owner of the yamaha fs1e he rode in minder A STAR IS BORN Back in 1984 would be nice to know how or where it came about to appear on tv. All the best Mike.

I remember Michael Deeks. He lived in Hightown Road in Maidenhead. I was introduced to him by his pal Albie.

He was very nice, polite and well educated. Unfortunately the traps of fame seemed difficult for him as there were many hangers on..

Wherever you are Michael, take care and enjoy your life. Forget about people that want to harm you and your reputation.

You are a top Bloke and I was privileged to have met you.

Nice to see it all calmed down a bit once Abbey realised many of us did (and do) know Micky.
I know from experience he is capable of standing his ground against 5 guys on his own.
Running your mouth from the end of a keyboard is not smart when the guy probably never visits this site, but I am happy to step in for him face to face to face with you if you think some of us do not know the guy.
I vaguely knew Michael - he was a year above me at Reading Blue Coat School.
I have to say I’m shocked by the vitriol and negativity even in the less offensive comments here that haven’t been removed.
Sheesh! Geezer was just being an actor.

I am Marie’s Agent. Firstly I just want to say that it is deeply saddening that people can be so cruel without even knowing the person they are being cruel to, or the impact of the outcome of the malicious lies they spread. And that fans feel they have to take it so far that they cause peoples lives so much upset.

This is the truth for all the Genuine fans of Michael Deeks to clear up the nasty comments to a wonderful lady that does nothing other than help others.

Firstly Marie and Michael knew one another because Marie’s Dad (Ken) worked on the set of Dick Turpin. Many years later due to her fathers death she and Michael were in contact again. Despite the huge age gap, Marie in her 20s and Michael in his 40s, they fell deeply in love. Sadly due to the era/age of so many fans at that time most of these women being in their 40s to 50s obviously were incredibly jealous of Marie with her beautiful youthful looks and success. She had previously modeled for Athena posters and worked on many productions including Brave Heart.

There are so many nasty comments from people claiming to be family but please be aware these are nothing other than nasty jealous fans. Marie did indeed go to Australia but she went to do a course on massage therapy and reiki. Kyle was with his dad Michael during this but as prior arrangement, how is it so bad that a child stays with his dad whilst his mum goes off to work or do a course?

These jealous fans pretending to be known to Michael are none other than vile jealous people that did not for one minute stop to think about what they were doing. It is truly sad that Marie had to suffer this. She is such a loving, giving and caring person that would do anything for anyone yet she has to be targeted in this way.

For those of you that want to know, Michael is doing very well. Sadly Marie and Michael did break up and divorce but mainly due to the fact Marie never wanted her private life spread all over the Internet, which caused a huge amount of stress and even to the point of one jealous fan sending her threatening letters.

Michael is still in contact with Kyle every day and loves his son so much it is truly sad that these people can get away with this.

So I hope that clears things up once and for all, as it’s about time everyone knew the truth.

Marie is currently working on a huge project that I am sure we will all hear about in the future and Marie and Michael continue to be close friends to this very day.

Michaels maternal Grandmother was the sister of my grandfather

Yeah, I may have met you back in the day Gerry.
I came down for a weekend with KD and a few others, (but not Micky that time)
You know KD ;o)
No info on the whereabouts of Mike. I remember him and the Windsor Hells Angels coming to my home town of Ashburton. Got into a fight with them over a pool game. Got a good hiding, but looked after by him and the rest of the Angels ever since. Used to sing a great rendition of 'Like a Rolling Stone' in the local pub, The Golden Lion.
No infoe..he was always my mate..hope your.well big rock.wink..
albie..windsor hells angels
At the other end of Michael's career, I was trying to confirm if it was indeed him who appeared in a 1974 Tomorrow People story called A Rift In Time, where he played a non-speaking extra, a young gladiator boy? Quite clearly seen in quite a few scenes but just wanted to know for certain... thanks!
I lived in Maidenhead in 1975 & 76... I met Michael through his Brother Graham who was teaching with my then husband Phil.... I am wanting to contact Graham and Diana..... if anyone can put me in contact I would be grateful..... Yvonne

He was brought up in Maidenhead...lived at No 9 Lees Close. He had an elder brother (Graham) and his folks were June & Gerry Deeks. Michael was/is a big music fan and loved amongst many others, Rory Gallagher . Was educated at Reading Blue Coat School and Licensed Victuallers in Slough. I grew up in the same street and knew him for 20 years until about 1985. Don't what happened but hope he's doing OK.

I was an extra in Dick Turpin in 1979, with Mary Crosby, Michael Deeks and Oliver Tobias, it was a long and tiring 4 days but very enjoyable and at the end we all went to the Barge Inn in Bradford on Avon for a evenings drink. Richard O'Sullivan was drinking White Wine and Lemonade.
Bud Derrick
Have pics of him when he was filming in colney heath (herts) the cast came into the local pub for lunch. Great guy Mickey, very friendly as was rest of cast (Richard O'Sullivan Oliver Tobias to name a couple). This would have been some 35 plus years ago
I adored the show and Loved Michael as Swift Nick, so much so I wrote to Jim'll Fix It twice to get the chance to ride with him as I thought he was a great looking horseman!
Never even got an answer, quite relieved about that now. :o(
I knew Mickey when I was 16 and living in Cookham/ Maidenhead. He was then, and probably still is a warm, honest, funny, and lovely human being. I bumped into him some years later at a tube station in London. I told him I missed him then and if I had the chance I'd tell him the same thing now. God bless mate.

I am one of maries children and i am gobsmaked that some of these comments are over the internet, its none of ur business whats happening and some of u need to get ur facts right marie hasnt got a 22 month son as thats because its my sister ur talking about! what ever my mum has told u shouldnt be expolited over the internet this is a page for michael my old step dad, so please will people stop putting stuff over the internet! I found this when i was a lot younger and it had me in pieces and why is so much stuff about my younger brother on here! whats happening with him has nothing to do with any of you! unless ur part of my family which ur not the only person that may or may not have commented that has a right to should be sam, but for everyone else stick ur noses out of my familys business!!

And to the people that only commented regarding michael im not going to put anything apart from hes doing well and will let him know u asked about him..

So unless u hve something nice to say about michael dont comment because its not fair on my brothers and sisters that their privacy is being exploited on the internet!! and its unfair for if they was to ever see this or read some of the comments that has been put about my mum, they are very lucky they never had to read some of the disgusting things that i had to read when i was little! give a little respect to the children please!!!! as none of you had any thought about us why exploiting personal information over the internet!! its an invasion of privacy!! if u have a problem with my mum then deal with it with her not doing it so me and my siblings can see it or know about it!

Now I do not want to see another comment about any of my siblings or my mum or anything thats to do with anything that happened between my mum and michael if u have any respect because even if u dont like my mum thats not fair on us kids or michael to hve to read this!!! I hope now u can have some respect for my siblings!!!

p.s can please people understand i do not want broadcast my name because i would like some privacy but i had to stick up for my family especially my siblings!!
protecting my siblings!
No info, although would like to know what has happened to Mr Deeks since his disappearance from our screens!! I'm only concerned that none of you can spell properly lol....
i am friends of marie and michael, and i think that this is just another junk site trying to ruin peoples lives, firstly to the girl that says i have been happily living with michael for many years and marie is a lier!!! well i think you need to check yourself into a mental hospital as you only need to check marridges in dorset to see that marie and michael were happily married at the west bexington the manor house hotel in dorset, and as a friend of sam deeks she has not put any comments up here about her dad so stop using her name, marie and michael are still close friends and they still love there son very much, and if you want to try to say that there son isnt michaels well that just goes to show what sort of person you are as if hes not then it should be up to his dad to be the one to tell him, not fr him to read some crap online, what gives you the right to destroy his life do you have nothing better to do other than to pick on and upset a child??? and marie has not had any problems with social services far from it she is now a foster carer and has a beautiful house and adores her children including her 22 month old son from her husband andrew richardson, who is australaian and funny enough looks a bit like heath ledger funny that isnt it ???? and for any of michaels friends especially mike a lily who brought these two together please get in touch love to you from marie and michael
I remember Michael in Dick Turpin, I had a massive fangirl crush on him and had a few posters from Look In lol

It would be nice to see a facebook page for him or a twitter account. If so use my name to find me on facebook as I'd join it, hell I'd run it!

Love and best wishes to him, we all have our family dramas to contend with looking back my life could have been better too. xx

Have the Dick Turpin DVDs. It was a great series. Wonder why Michael went on to marry someone who had stalked him?!
Have just bought the complete set of Dick Turpin DVD's - what a great series it was. Richard and Michael were truly fantastic in it. I know Richard is doing well now, and I hope Michael and his family are too.
Hoping this might find its way to Mike,i lived next door to him with my family.."The Davidson's" have many happy memories in particular Mike singing Puff the magic dragon to us all when we were very young,way before the Swiftnick days,my father recently informed me of your parents passing,im deeply saddened to hear this,wishing you my very best.Richard...([email protected])

I worked alongside Michael when he was filming Dick Turpin. I was only 9 years old at the time but between filming Michael was a real laugh. Just to prove I am for real if Michael or Sam reads this Dick Turpin was filmed at an old stately home in Maidenhead and then at a farm in Rickmansworth where the original Black Beauty was filmed. My dad was part of the film crew and I remember very well playing in the maze at the stately home and going to the pub just down the road. Think it was then called the shepherds hut run by Bob and Anita. Sam if you read this please leave me a message so I can contact your dad. If you are unsure I can put more details on and answer some questions so you know I am genuine. I even have the Dick Turpin DVD with me and your dad along with Richard O'Sullivan who was also great to work with. Regards Darren

I'm not sure what happened to Mickey.
He used to spend a bit of time around the Maidenhead area, (Portland Arms, Windsor Castle), Friday nights we used to hang out at The Ferry in Cookham.

Sam, if you really are his son, send my regards to him. He may not recall my name, but he will recall my trike as I recall his words one lunchtime, in the Portland, when he said "I can't believe my luck", put his pint down, and ran out the pub.
It has something to do with what happened at The Ferry the previous night.

I'm so sad to return to the site and read all the information and "stories" about some woman. I'm possitive that wasn't the intention for anything regarding Michael Deeks. For him and his family to read such a pile of ... is just not decent gesture to show show him. And I strongly believe it is disrespectful. Do your troublesome storytelling elsewhere... and Michael, if you or members of your family ever read any of this, know that there are people in the world with the heart in the RIGHT place..!

Hi Michael....just a quick note to say g'day. Have fond memories of living down the road from you in Coleshill in 1988/89 and having a few quiet ones at the Red Lion Pub and occasionally down in Old Amersham. Hope to catch up again one day....

Does Anyone know if Marie King has ever gone by the name of Renaee?

Marie King - Narcissistic personality disorder.

She is one nasty bitch.
I'm surprised children services have not taken her son away from her yet.

Bestnotsay....i need to speak to you as it is of great importance, Michael does know of her other children and I am in contact with one of them...i need help if you have any information...i know she is in Brisbane but that's about it
Comment removed by request.
Marie has now left her 4 year old son Kyle with Michael and flown to Australia to be with her new boyfriend, she was meant to come back two weeks ago but still has not with no contact. She promised she would come back but has not. Social services have said that her son Kyle is now a much happier boy with Michael and he is going to do everything he can to look after him and make sure he does not go into care. This speaks volumes of the kind of man Michael is and the kind of Woman Marie is, she has abandoned her own child for a random ozzy bloke, more fool him.
I have loved Michael since Dick Turpin!
I love michael deeks!
Who rattled your cage?, and STOP SHOUTING! i think your the pratt, and i cant write anything i like so lets all keep talking about the sad face cow........

I used to be best friends with Michael and his brother many many years ago. I have been trying to track him down for years now-not just so I can be in touch with him but also on behalf of his old schoolfriend from Reading Bluecoat School, Peter Jackson. Peter would also love to see Michael again. We're both delighted he's still alive and well. If anybody is able to put us in touch with Michael we would be really happy.
Gillian, if you look at the messages further down - about 4 down from yours - you'll find out he's alive and well and living in Bournemouth
Sorry I have no information about him. However I would love to know if he is still around and above ground.

Ok, Anon. Thanks for the information. I hope things pick up for him soon, and that he keeps well.
I'm not going to enter into the argument over his ex, but I hope he find someone nice who cares for him and makes him happy.
He was gorgeous then, I bet he's still not bad looking now, for an old guy!
All the best, Michael, you gave me some happy thoughts when I was a girl!
Comment removed by request.
So, what is the conclusion? Is Michael dead or alive? In Britain, or not?

Also, how old is he now? And does he still have the long, curly, blonde hair?!

He was my first real crush when I was 15! I'd love to know how he is and where he is and what he's doing now. Is he still acting?
