Unlike most of his peers, Ken passed his eleven plus exam and entered grammar school.
The 1970s saw Ken struggle to find a new path in life as he left the teaching profession and took on variety of jobs, working as a taxi driver, Community Development Officer and Editor of the free newspaper Weatherfield Recorder during this period.
In 1973 he married Janet Reid, but the couple separated after only a few months.
They had a strong bond despite an age difference of more than ten years but Ken's view of a comfortable, stable family life bored Deirdre and in 1983 she had an affair with Mike Baldwin.
