A spokesman for the show said: 'Arthur is delighted with the success of 'Er Indoors and it just shows what a wonderful idea it was in the first place when we started the series to have a character like that. She's never been seen and she never will be, but she is always lurking in the background.'
Arthur, played by George Cole in the long-running comedy drama series, is a second-hand car dealer out to make easy money from unsuspecting buyers.
The Cockney character has launched a whole series of nicknames and rhyming slang phrases, which have turned the show into 'a nice little earner'.
The dictionary definition for 'Er Indoors will simply be 'wife', and not a spouse who is neither seen nor heard.Reuse content
