Businessman Alan arrived in the Street to stay with his war years friend Len Fairclough. Len did the building work for him when he opened up a hair salon on Rosamund Street, employing Elsie Tanner as receptionist. Alan threw his money about and impressed the regulars but, shortly after marrying Elsie, he declared himself bankrupt.

He upset Elsie by taking money from his ex-wife Laura and by having an affair with Janet Reid. In 1973, the Howards left for his native Newcastle and the marriage split up shortly afterwards.
