Mike Baldwin character jug - Carlton Ware 1986

Mike Baldwin character jug produced by Carlton Ware in 1986. Michael Vernon "Mike" Baldwin is a fictional character from the British ITV soap opera Coronation Street, portrayed by Johnny Briggs. Mike opened his namesake denim-maker business, Baldwin's Casuals, in Weatherfield and moved there after ending his relationship with his common-law wife Anne Woodley. Quickly establishing himself as the street's most uncompromising employer, Mike was quick to threaten his machinists with the sack if they slacked and had additionally taken a dim view of workers getting above themselves. Mike was involved in several of the show's highly profiled events. This included a love triangle scenario which saw Mike having an affair with local resident Deirdre Barlow while she was still married to her husband Ken Barlow. The storyline continued onto 1983 and became a ratings winner, with the UK's newspapers giving the story much coverage.
The episode where Deirdre ends her affair with Mike and reconciles with Ken was the show's highest-rated episode at the time.
