FAMILY : Mother, actress Mela White. Father, actor, Ronald Lacey (Porridge fame), died of cancer 9 years ago. ‘It was the worst time of my life. I just looked after him and worried after him.

ON CHARACTER GEORGE : ‘I think she’s a good strong role model for young women today. She’s straight forward, honest and confident which is something men find attractive.’

LIKE GEORGE? : ‘We look the same but that’s about it. She doesn’t take any nonsense in her personal or private life, I’m a pussycat by comparison.’

MEMENTO OF SHOW : ‘I took away the name tag at the end of my stint on the show and it’s lying in a drawer, so I know where it is if I ever go back to the programme.’

WHY SHE LEFT CASUALTY : She left as she missed her friends and family in London, but also found she missed the friends she made in Bristol, ‘It was hard leaving because I was happy.’

WHEN SHE LEFT CASUALTY : ‘I sobbed all the way up the M32 from Bristol and for most of the way up the M4 to London before I started to feel OK. It must have been about 100 miles.’
