Crossroads returned to the ITV network in 2001 after a 13 year absence. The only characters to return from the original series were Jill Harvey, Doris Luke and Adam Chance. The series originally aired five times a week but this was cut back to four episodes from September, 2001 onwards. The motel had been replaced from the original series by a hotel and was now being run by the Russell family.
Minty and fellow kitchen worker Des make up Crossroads' Ant & Dec. Their showbiz dreams go back to their days at the Hillvale Children's Home for difficult kids. He stayed away from trouble and gangs, but that has made him lonely. Until he met his ultimate alter-ego, Des.
Loud and proud, Minty's got a charming side that should help him to change the single status he hates.
LATER VERSION OF BIOGRAPHY:
Minty and Des are Crossroads' Ant & Dec, with Minty the natural leader of the double act. Since he first met Des at Hillvale Children’s Home he has managed to overcome his sad and difficult childhood to become the joker of the pack. Coming to Crossroads when he was 16, Minty has found relative happiness as a kitchen worker but he dreams of being a top DJ, and as music wannabes go he isn’t bad. Whether he’s got what it takes to stand out from the crowd remains to be seen, but he’s dedicated to giving his ambition a chance.
Minty has a charm born of humour that makes him better at chatting up women than Des and he would dearly love a girlfriend. His attempts to pull have largely met with failure, but he hopes that when he becomes the next Judge Jules the ladies will find him irresistible. Chloe seems determined to resist anyway.
Minty left Crossroads to fulfil his ambition of becoming a DJ. Ultimately he returned to the hotel when things failed to work out. His love life remained practically non-existant – apart from a semi-stalker called Jenny during his pirate radio phase. At the end of the series he found out that he had been left a valuable antique vase in his mother’s will. (Episodes 317-320)
