Ezra Dingle is one of Zak Dingle's brothers. Ezra, along with his wife Gwen Dingle and their two children and their dog, arrive at Wishing Well Cottage in their ice cream van for Zak's baby daughter Belle's christening in March 1999. They end up getting the date mixed up so they stay at Wishing Well Cottage for a few days until the christening, which annoys Zak's wife Lisa. Ezra returned in October 1999 for his niece Mandy Dingle's wedding to Paddy Kirk. Ezra caused trouble and started a brawl outside the village hall. He then swiftly left the village for the last time.
