Crossroads returned to the ITV network in 2001 after a 13 year absence. The only characters to return from the original series were Jill Harvey, Doris Luke and Adam Chance. The series originally aired five times a week but this was cut back to four episodes from September, 2001 onwards. The motel had been replaced from the original series by a hotel and was now being run by the Russell family.
Des and Minty are not the only ones who think Beena's gorgeous - she's her own number one fan. She's an undeniable stunner with ambitious plans to get into modelling or TV, but has she got what it takes to become the new Jennifer Lopez? She may not be the smartest waitress in the bar at Crossroads, but when you look like that who cares?
LATER VERSION OF BIOGRAPHY:
Beena’s gorgeous and doesn’t she know it. As brains go she might not be the brightest of babes, but with her sultry looks she certainly shines in. She’s an expert in using her assets to get what she wants, and has Minty and Des wrapped around her little finger. She has even managed to charm Jake into promoting her from waitress to receptionist - a move that saw Kully quit in disgust.
Beena’s confident and forceful attitude means that her friends hold her in awe, and although she can be a bit snappy she does genuinely care about them. It’s just that it would spoil her sassy image if anybody knew it.
Although she’s not short of admirers at Crossroads, Beena wouldn’t dream of lowering herself enough to go out with someone sad enough to work there. Any man who aspires to Beena’s heart better be willing and able to treat her to the highlife she knows she deserves.
Beena remained at the centre of Des and Minty’s affections but was too busy flirting with Jake Booth to care. She was demoted back to waitressing following their affair although it also had something to do with the hotel’s financial difficulties. Her other notable relationship was with Richard Mason who wanted to use her as a sweetener in a business deal.
