Just watching and it has brought back so many memories. But who is the clumsy fucker who keeps ruining the scenes? <lighthearted>

They called them extras in those days. No above your status supporting artistes!

Is it Lofty? Wasn't he the barman?

No, the window cleaner.

@Comefromaway Wiki has him as barman after leaving the army due to his chest

I did wonder about the window cleaner coming inside the house, was that a thing in the 80’s?

Lofty was the barman who married Michelle after she got pregnant at 16 by Dirty Den.

I assumed it was because it was a pub he cleaned inside too. Don’t forget smoking indoors was legal back then.

Lofty was the barman, but it was the window cleaner interrupting that episode.

How strange that we were all so invested in a storyline where a man in his forties had sex with his teenage daughter's friend. That's the 80s for you.

There was moments when Den was physically aggressive with Ange last night that they would not have now if they were writing a character as a “lovable rogue”, in the 80’s slamming your wife into the sofa was acceptable behaviour hmm
