Character Bio

Dolly Bellfield photo

Something of a social climber, Dolly is the cattiest of the dinnerladies, always having a bitchy remark to make about those around her.

Prim and prudish, she frequently snaps at people that they ought to moderate their language, and frowns on Twinkle's sexual shenanigans.

Perhaps because of earlier problems, alluded to in the first series episode "Moods", she is fixated on her weight and dieting.

She has been married for thirty years and hopes to move to the nearby upmarket suburb of Mobberley after her retirement. Her constant regret is that her son Stephen lives with a marine biologist called Marcus (the audience are left to draw their own conclusions as to the living arrangements).

Her husband, Bob, pretends to be deaf when they are in company and can't go to the toilet when with visitors, though Dolly claims "He can hear a bag of oven chips being opened from three doors away!"
