The 'Fawlty Towers' hotel in Torquay had a Spaniard named Manuel working as a waiter. Toobworld Central is making the claim that Manuel had an identical cousin who grew up in Switzerland.
As was the case with Manuel, Jacques worked in a hotel, as a desk clerk at the Hotel de la Paix in Geneva. Jacques often went out of his way to help frequent guest (and generous tipper) Simon Templar, aka 'The Saint'.

Both characters were portrayed by Andrew Sachs.....
