Who is Gary Ball?

Absolutely Ascot is absolutely bringing the drama in 2019. The casting team have decided that bringing Claudia Smith’s ex onto our screens is a good idea.

And let’s face it we can’t wait for fireworks to explode when Claudia, her brother Samson and Gary collide.

Gary is likely to be in his early twenties much like the rest of the cast and his line of work is currently unknown.

What happened between Gary and The Smiths?

Gary is Claudia’s ex-boyfriend and therefore the ex-best friend of Samson. Claudia and Gary were in a serious relationship and even had plans to get engaged, but the two have been estranged for the last couple of years.
Claudia and her whole family are shaken up by Gary’s arrival in Ascot. And on his return, although Gary’s intentions are good, many old feelings are brought up when they meet face-to-face.
A report from The Daily Mail details how things ended. It was Claudia who ended the relationship, which Gary highlights in episode 1 of the show. He said: “At the end of the day, you ended things with me”.
Claudia replied:
You made me end things with you, Gary. It had to end. I can’t go on when I don’t trust you.
