Herbert Harrison "Bert" Tilsley was played by Peter Dudley. He was the first husband of Ivy Brennan and the father of Brian Tilsley. Prior to his debut, Ivy had referred to her husband as 'Jack' and mentioned that they were childless. Bert died (offscreen) in January 1984 of a heart attack while in a psychiatric hospital, following a nervous breakdown, though the last appearance of the character was in July 1983. Actor Peter Dudley died in October 1983 (three months before the character's offscreen death) after suffering a series of strokes and heart attacks.

Bert is known to be more care-free and relaxed about Brian's life decisions, such as his marriage to Gail Potter, where Ivy was more restricted.
