Jim was a lorry driver who found fault with Martin Platt on his first day working at Jim's Cafe. Jim returned to his table to find that his cigarettes and matches had been cleared away and objected. Puzzled, Martin told Jim that another driver at an adjoining table had claimed them as his own. Jim knew the other driver of old - "a rogue" - and demanded them back, not seeing the funny side of the joke that had been played on him. Gail Tilsley knew the men as regular customers and told them to leave the youngster alone - working with them in the cafe had come as a shock to him after his previous job of feeding the animals in the zoo!
- Credited as "Second Lorry Driver", the character was named in dialogue.
