    Rowland also fell in love with a French exchange student & tried to sneak on a ferry to follow her home.

    Janet St Clair was African? - I am not sure about that, but I am certain that the actress was born in this country and was of West Indian origin.
    I didn't mean she was actually of African origin, just that her accent was from West africa

    I hadn't noticed her accent myself.

    Her name was Fabien, Richard and Roland mentioned as late as Series 10, e asked her if she would marry him later on

    I think Fabien was even in a few Episodes alongside Janet - not as they "declared" each other, as rivals for Rolly's effections!

    I don't remember much about Fabien but funnily enough she looked a bit like Miss Mooney the teacher from a few series before - Roland was speaking French all the time, probably to: A) Impress her; and B) Be prepared just in case he could move to France with her. Janet St Clair warned Roland: "you've got to start speaking English again, Roland - you can't speak French all the time".

    I wonder whether the actress who played her was indeed French or the fact that she simply portrayed a French person quite well?
