Roy Thornley was Sylvia Matthews' "business associate" at Sylvia's Separates. He tried his charms on Elsie Howard, who saw through him immediately, but 19-year-old Gail Potter was taken in, and Roy took her virginity in the stockroom.

Elsie forced Roy to admit to a love-struck Gail that he was indeed married to a woman about 15 years older than him, and they had two children. Worse was to follow for Gail when she was cited as co-respondent by Doreen Thornley in a divorce. Gail was sacked from Sylvia's Separates.

It took plenty of persuading from Elsie to ensure that Gail got her job back, and that she was an innocent party in the divorce. Eventually Doreen found a new scarlet woman as co-respondent - Sylvia Matthews, Roy's boss.
