Tel made his first appearance 5 May 1987. He is portrayed by Michael Garner.


Tel was one of four workmen contracted by James Willmott-Brown to renovate The Dagmar on Turpin Road, which he had acquired the tenancy for. Tel along with the others lodges at the Abercorn Bed & Breakfast to be close to the job site. He and the others frequently flirt with Angie Watts much to her delight and frequently banter with her. They prove to be lazy and are often seen in The Queen Vic and the Café, much to James' frustration. They delay the Dagmar job further by helping set up for the engagement party at the Vic for Debbie Wilkins and Terry Rich. However, with the help of Arthur Fowler, the men complete renovations within a month, and the Dagmar wine bar opens. Tel and another workman Ray are the only two who have dialogue and are credited on screen.
