Paddy Vincent was the Finance Director of Newton & Ridley who went for a business lunch with a member of his staff, rep Dan Jones, at Nick's Bistro one day in June 2015. Coming in soon after them were Liz McDonald and Erica Holroyd and Paddy asked to be sat at the table adjoining theirs and was soon giving them his full repertoire of cheesy chat-up lines, much to Dan's embarrassment. The two ladies dealt with the attention easily but less happy with Paddy was Nick Tilsley as his attentions were concentrated on Erica, his pregnant girlfriend, and he made a point of asking the ladies if the two gentlemen were bothering them.
When their meals were brought to them, Paddy and Dan were unimpressed and complained that the meat was pure gristle and Paddy likened it to a "Bushtucker Trial" from the television programme I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!. Nick was unfazed and told them to write what they liked on TripAdvisor but Erica remonstrated with him and he reluctantly apologised. Paddy was unimpressed with his insincerity and called him "Basil", noting the resemblance between his customer service manner and that of Basil Fawlty.
