Jerry Dignan, also known as Jerry St. Clair, started off as the main entertainment act at the Phoenix Club. He is a star in the eyes of every pensioner in the Bolton area. During the re-opening of the club in series 2, he became licencee and thus the new owner, taking over from Brian Potter.
After the club was burnt down, Jerry and his club band “Les Alanos” worked in a supermarket where they sung famous songs, which had been rewritten in order to promote certain products. Brian manages to sway Jerry with an offer of him being licencee, due to the authorities thinking Brian’s negligence being the cause of the fire.
As licencee, Jerry made some changes, much to Brian’s horror, including opening a Chinese restaurant in the club and trying to turn it into a themed club. Brian eventually got his name cleared but decided to allow Jerry to continue running the club with him.
