Couple #11 – Daisy and Onslow
He’s “bone-idle”, reads the Financial Times, and is a regular viewer of Open University. She’s responsible for Daddy and keeping tabs on the daily escapades of her sister, Rose. Forced to lose herself in romantic novels while Onslow drinks beer and watches racing on “the telly”, Daisy almost lost Onslow on her wedding day after revealing she was a Liverpool F.C. supporter.
Even though both endlessly crush Hyacinth’s hopes of creating the perfect impression by turning up in their broken-down, backfiring Ford automobile, Onslow and Daisy seem very close and made for each other. Most of their conflicts stem from ‘Dais’ being quite the romantic and Onlsow ‘having a headache’. Through it all, Onslow hangs with Daisy through each of Daddy’s engagements and Rose’s romantic encounters, and Daisy is always there for Onslow and even, sometimes, seems to enjoy how much he gets to Hyacinth.
