Frederick "Fred" Gee appeared from 1972 to 1984. Fred was a relatively unpleasant and unsympathetic character. He remained as an employee at the Rovers Return Inn until he was fired by Billy Walker in 1984. Fred got through two wives during his time - Edna and Eunice.

Fred frist appeared in 1972 after his wife Edna died in a warehouse fire. Shortly after, Annie Walker, landlady of the Rovers Return Inn was ordered by the brewery to take on a resident cellar man after the pub had been broken into. Annie was instantly impressed by the quietly spoken, dapper Fred with his olde worlde charm and impeccable manners. This, like so much else of Fred, was just a front to cover his true self, idle, ignorant and coarse. In 1976 he briefly had a fling with Vera Duckworth and brought her back to the Rovers to have afternoon tea with Annie! Fred was unlikeable and devious, and often did things for the sheer devilment, such as tossing bread on top of Eddie Yeats dustcart to attract pigeons in order to ruin his chances of winning the Best Kept Dust-Cart competition. Despite the fact that he liked to think he was in charge of the pub, Annie dominated him, Bet Lynch ridiculed him and Betty Turpin did nothing to hide her contempt for him. In 1999, Eunice Gee, his second wife returned for a brief time and announced that Fred had died of a heart attack previously.
