His brief affair with Debs didn't rock his boat, so the smooth-talking ladies' man tricked unsuspecting Kathy into a compromising position, and raped her.

Despite his protestations of innocence, it turned out that he had form for the same offence – and when he came crawling back, asking her to start again, he was given short shrift and the mob ran him out of Albert Square back to prison... where he belongs!
