George William Frederick Turner was a friend of Arnold Swain who took him out to the Rovers on the night before Arnold's wedding to Emily Bishop in September 1980. Knocking back the shorts (and buying plenty of them as well), he was the life and soul of the party while admitting that he was never married himself as he wouldn't have had enough friends for a stag do. George acted as a witness alongside Deirdre Langton during the ceremony which was conducted in Weatherfield Register Office. At the reception at 3 Coronation Street, he got fresh with Elsie Tanner and Rita Fairclough, much to the consternation of the two ladies, before he read out the telegrams including ones from Jim Sedgewick and Leonard Swindley, before introducing Arnold for his speech.

He had been a navy man, last serving as a sparks on the Red Duster.

Bill Waddington would go on to play long-time Coronation Street resident Percy Sugden.
