Lois Fairhurst was a friend of Sally Seddon's who Sally tried to set up with Curly Watts for Peter and Susan Barlow's 21st birthday party in 1986. Curly never got to meet Lois as she cried off with a cold.
Later that year, Lois picked out Sally's dress for her wedding to Kevin Webster and accompanied Sally to the Registry Office in the taxi. She enjoyed dressing up for the wedding and causing a stir on the bus. Lois and Curly paired off at the reception and Curly later took Lois out on a date to the pictures. Lois also went to a New Year's Eve party thrown by Kevin and Sally at 13 Coronation Street.
