The Shop Assistant helped Tina Fowler choose her wedding dress the day before she was due to marry Eddie Ramsden. As it was a registry office do arranged in haste to strengthen Eddie's claim on his son Jamie, Tina was mainly worried about looking nice for Eddie. While Tina was in the changing room, the assistant made conversation with Bet Gilroy, accompanying Tina, joking that she wasn't losing a daughter but gaining a huge bill for the reception. She was surprised when Bet told her that Tina was just a friend and not family.
