He was Tony Warren’s partner for a number of years throughout the 1960s, the decade in which Coronation Street (1960) was first shown.
For a while, he was the proprietor of an antique shop on Notting Hill’s Portobello Road.
During the weekends, his on-screen wife Anne Cunningham, who was played by Weatherfield’s Linda Cheveski, would occasionally pitch in and help out.
