Ted Gibson was a tenant of 9 Coronation Street from 1950 to 1960. A former GPO worker, Ted worked at Dave Smith's Betting Shop in Rosamund Street as a clerk. In 1950, then 53, Ted met Amy Foster, a shop assistant at Miami Modes; they fell in love instantly and married that same year.

Ten years after moving into No.9, the Gibsons won £20,000 on a coupon and left for a world cruise in November 1960 before settling in Dorset.

Ted first appeared in Daran Little and Bill Hill's "Weatherfield Life", published in 1992. Other information is derived from Little's follow-up book, "Around the Coronation Street Houses".
