Ben Buck was the illegitimate son of Alice Buck and Vic Piggott, born in 1915. Alice had sex with Vic on the night before he left to fight in the war. She fell pregnant and begged Vic's mother Emma for money but Emma refused to believe her baby was Vic's. Alice then turned to parents and was allowed to stay at No.9 but Ned Buck refused to speak to her. A week after baby Ben was born, Ned told her to take her bastard child and leave. She died of TB in a London workhouse and Ben was taken into parish care.

Ben first appeared in Daran Little and Bill Hill's "Weatherfield Life", published in 1992. Other information is derived from Little's follow-up book, "Around the Coronation Street Houses".
