Character Bio

Petula Gordino photo
-

Bren's selfish and manipulative mother, who had Bren taken into care as a child because she was cramping her style.

She sometimes seems to forget that Bren is her daughter. Whenever she pays Bren a visit, it's usually because she wants money or a favour.

She appears to live in a fantasy world where she is a close friend (and usually a lover) of the rich and famous, but in reality is a down-and-out who lives in a caravan behind a petrol station.

In the second series, she embarks on an affair with an Asian man and claims to be pregnant with his child. In the final episode, she dies off-screen.

It is revealed that her real name is also Brenda Furlong.
