His bride - the third Mrs Ward - will be Jenny Hoyland, principal of Hendon College in London. Jenny, touchingly, was his childhood sweetheart. Champagne, always Roger's favourite tipple, will no doubt liberally be poured.
Roger has not been idle since slipping away from his desk 18 months ago. He was last seen in a Firkin pub - eerily in a deconsecrated church - discussing his next venture with a builder.
He's planning to open a restaurant in Muswell Hill.
