Set entirely in the canteen of HWD Components, a fictional factory in Manchester. The inner lives and social interactions of the mostly female, mostly middle-aged staff are vividly and amusingly depicted. Bren tries to maintain order among the chaos, while dealing with her unspoken love for the canteen supervisor, sex-obsessed cancer sufferer Tony.
After graduating from Salford University, Peake trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. ...
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.
