Character Bio

Twinkle photo

The youngest member of the team, she turns up late every day and tries unsuccessfully to borrow cigarettes from Tony.

No matter how sarcastic she may be however, it is clear that she regards the other members of staff as good friends, particularly Bren to whom she turns for help on several occasions.

She lives with her wheelchair-using mother, for whom she acts as carer, and spends her evenings getting drunk and falling into skips.

She loses a lot of weight between series.

She is also a closeted football fan, and is always amazing Tony with her depth of knowledge of the game.
