Benny was a heavy in Phil Jennings's employ. When Phil began an association with Deirdre Barlow and decided to scare Ken Barlow into staying away from his estranged wife, he followed Ken from Weatherfield Comprehensive to a garage forecourt in a car driven by Benny. While looking at a car with an interest to buy, Ken was approached and threatened by Phil, with Benny maintaining an ominous presence throughout the conversation.

After Benny and Phil drove off, Ken noted the car's licence plate number so that he could report the incident to the police, however they did not pursue the matter.

In January 1991, Benny collected Phil and Deirdre from Manchester Airport following their New Year trip to Paris, and dropped Deirdre home to 1 Coronation Street.

The part of Benny was a non-speaking role for Mel Fredericks, and the character was uncredited in his second appearance.
