Ronnie Corbett plays a character of the same name, a young man trying to break free from his Mother, but having a little difficulty in doing so.

However, with a little help from his friend Keith Ronnie does eventually manage to break free, even if he does end up living just a few doors away.  In series 2 he even gets married to local librarian Laura.
