Maurice Rowe was a bar steward employed in the same hotel as Dennis Tanner and Jenny Sutton. In January 1968, Maurice took Jenny on as bar staff and moved Dennis to waitering, as he fancied Jenny and wanted her to himself, but Dennis caught Maurice groping Jenny in the stockroom and threatened to report him to management. Dennis realised how he felt about Jenny and followed her when she returned to London a few days later, the couple marrying later in the year.
