Joel Chan (陳山聰) turned 43 years old on 2nd October 2019. He was given the opportunity to play the male lead in TVB drama, Golden Building (金宵大廈) for the first time and it received good reviews. Joel was also given the lead role in new series (大步走) and announced about tying knot with his girlfriend, Apple (何麗萍) on 1st November, after dating for 5 years.
In 2011, Joel was discovered to develop a relationship with Stanley Ho’s (何鴻燊) eldest daughter, Florinda Ho (何超雲). She was pointed to enjoy higher social status than Joel and it shocked the entertainment industry. In the same year, he was exposed for marrying the image consultant, Ponny Yeung (楊渡萍) secretly for 2 years and filed for a divorce in 2010.
Subsequently, his romance with Florinda lasted for 2 years and his image was heavily affected after the separation. Upon his friend’s introduction, Joel knew Apple who gave him full support and managed to focus on his career again. He was groomed by TVB gradually.
Other than feeling grateful to his girlfriend’s support, Joel expressed his desire to become a father quickly and Apple will be turning to 41 years old on 19th November. As there is a higher risk in the pregnancy at her age, both decide to have a baby immediately after their marriage.
