Frank Spencer

Frank Spencer was the leading character in the BBC's highly successful 1980s sitcom, Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. Every week saw the idiotic but well-meaning Frank, played by Michael Crawford, getting into ridiculous scrapes which usually involved a major degree of physical exertion. Frank, sporting his trademark beret and raincoat, was married to the (apparently normal) Betty (played by Michele Dotrice) and in later series they had a baby daughter, Jessica, which offered scope for even more slapstick humour. Frank was a gift for impersonators, and the name "Frank Spencer" may still be used in the UK to refer to a particularly inept man, particularly one who is not very good at home improvements.
