Carrie and David Grant on raising their trans and nonbinary children | The Sunday Times Magazine

The family home of Carrie and David Grant and their four children is a grand white stuccoed house in a peaceful close in north London. A piano and guitars take pride of place in the huge open-plan living room, which overlooks a swimming pool (drained for winter) in the back garden.

On the surface you might think the Grants lead a charmed life — and in many ways they do. The couple have been on our TV screens for decades. Carrie is a reporter with The One Show, David a presenter on Songs of Praise. In the early 2000s the pair were voice coaches on the hit reality TV show Pop Idol and before that David was the lead singer with the 1980s
