Viewers of a certain age who just happened to flick onto the VH1 channel back in 2005 may have come across a face that looked startlingly familiar. Granted, the man in question had aged quite a bit, but the boyish good looks were still just about there. A cursory look at the show’s credits would reveal the actor to be Christopher Knight – a former child star from The Brady Bunch. Now, after years spent largely out of the public eye, he had returned to television screens in the most unlikely fashion.

Knight had risen to fame playing Peter Brady on family sitcom The Brady Bunch, which had run for five years from 1969 on the ABC Network. Peter is the second-eldest son of Mike Brady – portrayed by Robert Reed – who is father to three brunette boys. His wife, Carol Martin, who was played by Florence Henderson, also has three children of her own, but they are all blonde girls.
