The paper says that after giving up his escort work to be with Audrey, Lewis is a bit skint. So he hatches a plot to get his hands on some cash and heads to the bookies to rob it. He slips a fake betting slip into the pile while flirting with Deirdre. Ooh, the cad! And when he asks her to check his bet she’s delighted to tell him he’s made £300 on the horses. Ooh, the blaggard and bounder!
Is Lewis Corrie's first gentleman villain? I can't think of another Raffles-type character from Corrie's past, can anyone else?
