Nobby Harris was a nervous and somewhat quietly-spoken Welshman who was part of the gang led by Big Arthur and who tried to persuade Eddie Yeats to help them rob a supermarket on Christmas Day, acting as the getaway driver. Eddie, untempted by the offer of a £300 share, refused but he did take advantage of knowing that the power would be cut in the area to enable the robbery to take place to buy the Corner Shop’s stock of candles and selling them at a profit when the Street was plunged into darkness.

He then became involved when the gang stored part of their takings - tins of ham - in Minnie Caldwell’s coal hole. The police however were on to the gang and Big Nobby, Arthur and a heavy named Roland called on Eddie at No. 5 as they suspected him of grassing them up. Nobby translated Big Arthur’s finger snaps into words of English. Eddie managed to convince the gang of his innocence and the ham was taken away from the house.

The character is also credited on Episode 1457 (6th January 1975) but does not appear.
