Occupation Boxing coach


Ernie Mears was the boxing coach of Ian Beale and love interest of Ethel Skinner.

When Ian took an interest in boxing, he began attending a local gym. Ethel accompanied Ian to the gym on his first visit, where Ernie mistook Ethel as Ian's mum. Ernie later remembered Ethel from the Second World War; he managed to woo her but disappeared from her life when she married his friend, William Skinner. Ernie asks Ethel on a date and she agrees to see him. After a few weeks of getting to know each other and spending time together, Ernie asked Ethel to marry him. Ethel was thrilled by Ernie's proposal, but was saddened to learn that they would only marry on the condition that she gave up her beloved pet pug Willy, as he was allergic to dogs. Ethel considered giving up Willy to marry Ernie, but ended up declining Ernie's proposal. Ernie was heartbroken and left when he realised that his and Ethel's relationship would not work out.
