Ronnie Knight is in his 80s now, born in poverty in the East End of London to a family that became a well known criminal family with close links to the Kray family, he denies that he was ever a gangster but he was involved in crime, almost as today youngster on estates today are forced into gangs. Ronnie and his brothers were the last of what could be called the 'old school gangsters' who put emphasis on dressing well and having good manners and good (to their interpretations)morals.
Ronnie was a celebrity gangster who experienced the highs and the lows. In the public eye for being the husband of Barbara Windsor. It is difficult to dislike the man who suffered tragedy but also an exciting and rewarding life.
