Dawn Digby was the glamorous wife of former mayor Harold Digby. Several years younger than her husband, she was a former sales demonstrator. Alf Roberts hosted the Digbys for a meal and Mavis Riley was supposed to be his hostess but backed out at the last minute. Rita Littlewood stepped into breach but the very revealing cleavage of her dress caused worry from Alf and admiration from Harold.
Rita and Dawn got on well. The former mayoress was cheerful, gregarious and down to earth and confessed that the part of her civic duties she hated most was dealing with some of the "lady muck" women. The evening went well but Rita was perturbed to receive a present a few days later of a see-through nightie. She and everyone else thought Alf had sent it but he insisted it wasn't him. Shortly thereafter Rita received a bracelet with a note from Harold Digby and realised who her admirer was. She contacted him and told him that she wasn't interested and was mortified when Dawn turned up in the Rovers soon after to speak with her. Rita was worried that she was going to be accused of having an affair with a married man but a relaxed Dawn told Rita that although they had a happy marriage, it was a weakness of Harold's to send such gifts to women he fancied and then guiltily confess his attraction to his wife afterwards. She also laughed and told Rita that it was a good job she wasn't having an affair as her stuttering manner would give her away as a terrible liar. Rita didn't hear from Harold again.
