Victor "Vic" Piggott was the son of Fred and Emma Piggott and moved into 13 Coronation Street in 1902. Vic and his twin brother Bob signed up with the Lancashire Fusiliers in 1915. On the night before leaving the Street, Vic had a passionate encounter with Alice Buck, but he never met his son Ben as, in his absence, Emma refused to believe that Vic would even look at Alice. Some months later, the Piggotts received news that both of their sons had been killed when a bomb hit their dugout on the Somme.

Vic 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".
