Gary "Spotty" made his first appearance on 9 May 1985. He is portrayed by Peter Laxton.
Gary pretends to be an Italian waiter named Carlo 'Chas', who Michelle Fowler is in love with. Gary shows up at Ian Beale's flat at Walford Towers, to watch a dance video that Ian has bought from a friend. Gary isn't very convincing at playing Carlo. Sharron seems to guess that he is a fake and finds the whole situation extremely amusing. As the group sits down to watch their video, they are startled to discover that Ian's friend has mistakenly given him a pornographic movie.
