Frederick Lanscombe was the husband of Juliana Lanscombe and father to Cressida Lanscombe.

In 2018, Frederick and his wife set Cressida up with Henry Newton - who came from the wealthy Newton family However, Henry later decided that he was unable to go through with the marriage as he had feelings for Gemma Winter. Henry's decision infuriated the Lanscombes as they had already put forward £20,000 as a deposit for the venue - which they would be unable to claim back. As a result, Frederick and Julia hired two thugs to force Henry into paying the debt. In August, when Henry was unable to pay up the thugs dragged him into a car and drove him away from Coronation Street and by October he had married Cressida.
