Plays
Jackie Pascoe/Webb

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER IN THIS SERIES.
She is still living with Kyle at his house. But she is taking sole charge of baby Paddy now as Kyle isn’t interested.  She also has a relationship with Roger Webb the football manager. He is played by Jesse Birdsall who I have known for years, so it was good fun working with him.

WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING IN FOOTBALLERS’ WIVES?
That I get to wear lovely glamorous clothes!  And work with great people.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER? 
She’s feisty and funny.  And it’s nice too play someone with money and a glamorous lifestyle. 

ARE YOU LIKE YOUR CHARACTER AT ALL?  HOW DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD GET ON WITH THEM IF YOU MET THEM IN REAL LIFE?
I’m absolutely nothing like her.  But I do think we’d get on.  She’s funny and bright, and she’s a good laugh.  I can imagine her being a really good mate.

DO YOU LIKE THE CLOTHES THAT YOUR CHARACTER WEARS?  WOULD YOU WEAR THEM AS YOURSELF?
Yes, I love them.  And I would wear them as myself – in fact, I do!  I bought some of the outfits at the end of the last series.  And I will hopefully get a couple of these outfits.  It is one of the perks of the show that we get to wear such fabulous costumes and jewellery.

WHAT SCENE HAVE YOU MOST ENJOYED OR HATED FILMING SO FAR?
The two little boys who play Paddy are adorable, James and Edward, so I love it when they are on set and it has been fun working with Jesse this series.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR CHARACTER’S HOUSE?  AND THE CARS? DO YOU THINK YOU’D LIKE TO LIVE THAT SORT OF LIFESTYLE?
Kyle and Jackie have moved house this year! But it is nice and big with a lovely garden and an indoor pool.  It’s not my style but it is very glamorous

DO YOU EVER TREAT YOURSELF TO LUXURY HEALTH & BEAUTY TREATMENTS?  Yes I love having facials and I also have the occasional massage –  they are so relaxing.

COSMETIC ENHANCEMENT FEATURES A GREAT DEAL IN THIS SERIES OF FOOTBALLERS’ WIVES.  COULD YOU EVER GO UNDER THE KNIFE?

IF SO WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE OR ENHANCE?  
Ha, too many to mention!

DO YOU HAVE A MORE NATURAL WAY OF KEEPING IN SHAPE OR CHANGING AN ASPECT OF YOUR APPEARANCE? 
I love keeping fit and I also love having my hair well cut and styled. 

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?  
I enjoy keeping fit – and going out for meals etc with the children.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST PROFESSIONAL ACTING ROLE?
‘Play for Today’ called Eleanor.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST EVER JOB?
