Malcolm Wilkinson was a well-to-do man who courted Christine Hardman in 1960. His habit of honking the horn of his car to announce he had arrived annoyed Christine. His lack of presence during the time Christine's mother May was ill put a strain on the relationship and Christine tried to end it, feeling she embarrassed him. Won over by an invitation to Malcolm's Rugby Club dance, the couple lasted a few more weeks. The pair parted when Christine finished with Malcolm as he had again absented himself when she needed him, staying away when May died.
- Actor Anthony Booth, who played Malcolm, was later married to Coronation Street actress Patricia Phoenix.
