Though the brothers are identical twins, they have very different physical appearances. This is because they were born with the same genetic condition but are currently very different from each other. The twins grew up in Croydon, South London.

Both brothers were diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type I, which manifests very differently. Adam is left severely disfigured, whereas Neil suffers memory loss and epilepsy.

Neil is a library assistant at The Royal Marsden School. He previously worked as Auxiliary Assitant at Ashburton Library. He studied at Shirley High School, did his further studies at Carshalton College, and graduated with a degree in business management from the University of Brighton.

Neil is still unmarried and lives a single life. However, he and his brother appeared in the BBC documentary, Horizon in the episode titled My Amazing Twin, which follows their search to find out if anything can be done to stop the disease from destroying their lives.

At age five, Adam hit his head while playing, and the resultant bump persisted instead of healing. Due to neurofibromatosis type I, non-cancerous tumors grew on his nerve tissue. After several years, his face became severely disfigured.

Due to his condition, Adam would often be bullied during his childhood days at school. When he became a grown-up, Adam became an activist and a campaigner for preventing bullying associated with deformities.
