Dennis Tanner was born at 11 Coronation Street, Weatherfield on 1st April 1942, the son of Elsie and Arnold, and younger brother of Linda.
Despite his best efforts to try and reconcile with Rita, he ended up leaving in July that year.
Without a care, he took the blame for damaged stock so he would be sacked.
Next up was a job at the Viaduct Sporting Club, which he had to thank Elsie for as she was dating its manager Laurie Frazer.
He was quiet about his life in London, but when Mavis Fox arrived looking for a Dennis Tanner who lived in a detached house in Coronation Street, Elsie smelled a rat and got it out of Dennis that he had been living with Mavis' family and that the upper-class girl had believed he was from a wealthy family.
He tried to pretend that his gran lived in Coronation Street and Elsie was the maid but had to admit the truth eventually.
Dennis Tanner was the son of Elsie Tanner and a Coronation Street resident from 1942 to 1968, and then again from 2011 to 2014.
