25th June1979: Short-notice work commitments meant Len Fairclough had to pull out of a caravan holiday with wife Rita in Morecambe, but Rita angered Len by inviting Bet Lynch instead. In Morecambe, Bet enjoyed flirting with two men, but Rita did her best to put them off. When she finally relented, letting them stay the night in the caravan - but only because she and Bet were scared of prowlers - Len showed up, creating a difficult situation for Rita to explain away. Len ended up going fishing with the men, leaving Bet and Rita to their own devices.
Kimberley Taylor was an employee at Bettabuy supermarket who was engaged to Curly Watts. Kimberley ended the relationship and transferred to another store when Curly pestered her to have sex before marriage. They reunited through a dating agency a year later before splitting for good when Curly blew £2,000 converting his loft into an observatory against Kimberley's wishes. Kimberley was the daughter of Randolph and Brenda Taylor. She was an only child and had a strict, sheltered upbringing as her parents were old-fashioned church-goers. Kimberley met Curly in October 1989 when he became Bettabuy supermarket's assistant manager. On Curly's first walk around the shop floor, manager Reg Holdsworth invited him to point out where Kimberley had made a mistake in her shelf-stacking technique. Curly re-arranged the display so that it would be more eye-catching to the customer, introducing himself to Kimberley as he did so.
