Character Bio

Nessa photo
Nessa is approximately 40 and works in the arcade on Barry Island. She's Barry born and bred, and yet she's worked in places as far flung as Peru, Namibia and Egypt. She is full of surprises - for example we learn in Series 2 that she used to be a truck driver for Eddie Stobart.

It appears Nessa has had sex with most of the men in Barry, plus several celebrities. Nothing really fazes Nessa. She's stoical and grimly accepting of life, but she's also loyal and protective of those she loves - especially Stacey, Bryn and Gwen.

Blunt and to-the-point, if you ask Nessa a question you know you'll get a soul crushingly honest answer back.

When Nessa becomes pregnant she has to change her lifestyle quite a bit - no more drinking for starters!
