When Ken forced his way into 1 Coronation Street to catch Phil Jennings there, believing (wrongly) that he'd spent the night with Deirdre, Deirdre consulted Dennis about taking out a court injunction against him. Dennis cautioned Deirdre against it, as by Deirdre's admission Ken was unlikely to harm her or Tracy physically and so they wouldn't have enough grounds to make Ken liable for arrest. As an alternative, Dennis suggested that he send Ken a letter warning him that they'd apply for a court order if he tried to get into the house without Deirdre's permission again. Tired of Ken's antics, Deirdre knew that the letter wouldn't make him desist but agreed to Dennis's proposal.
