Although she was big, bold and domineering, Maggie Robinson (Peggy Mount) was the perfect partner for her meek and timid husband, Reg (Hugh Lloyd).

They gave each other the soppy nicknames referred to in the programme’s title, and their life together in Fulham was a peaceful one.

Then, out of the blue, Reg’s  loudmouthed brother, Bruce (Rex Garner), returned from Africa with his timid wife, Violet (Pat Coombs), supposedly for a few days’ holiday.

However, the visitors outstayed their welcome and soon upset Lollipop and Mr Mole’s domestic bliss.

A second ATV series – with Bruce and Violet still in situ – was simply titled Lollipop.

Mount and Coombs reunited in 1977 for the awful You’re Only Young Twice.
