Lockdown rules currently mean he is offering virtual sessions only, but that will change once restrictions ease.

The Level 3 personal trainer specialises in corrective exercise, mental strength and senior fitness.

His fitness focused Instagram page shares motivational quotes, workouts and Q&A sessions.

Kai’s last TV acting role was in BBC soap Doctors in 2019. Prior to that he played paedophile Pete Buchanan in Hollyoaks and Rhys Williams in Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, alongside John Barrowman.
