Gordon Fraser was the ex-husband of actress Martha Fraser, Ken Barlow's 2009 love interest.

Ken met Martha one day in January 2009 when he was out walking his dog, Eccles, who fell into the freezing Weatherfield Canal. Martha managed to save her with a fishing net and offered Ken and Eccles a place to warm up, which he gratefully accepted. He asked her how long she had lived on the boat and she told him seven years after her divorce from the philandering Gordon. To sum him up she told Ken that if bed-hopping was an Olympic event, her ex would have been a gold medalist.
