Bert and son Gary, the only Horrobin offspring still living at home, make the Grundy men look like domestic gods.

They struggled to cope after the death of Bert's long-suffering wife Ivy in 2011, so Bert's daughter Susan asked her sister Tracy to move in. Canny Tracy agreed - after the place was spruced up and Bert had made it a joint tenancy.
