Cudlipp??s brief was for someone realistic, down to earth, and essentially northern in flavour.Daily Mirror staff artist Reg Smythe, a former corporal in the western desert during the Second World War came up with Andy Capp. A hard drinking layabout who when not laying on the sofa at home could be found propping up the bar of his local pub, Smythe also created a long suffering wife called Florrie who when not catering to Andys needs would be flinging plates and insults from the kitchen at him.
