Jackie Pascoe/Webb

JACKIE SEEMS TO BE ONE OF THE FEW REMAINING CAST FROM THE ORIGINAL SERIES. WHAT IS IN STORE FOR HER THIS YEAR?
She gets married to Roger and meets his son, Seb. She does get more involved with the other wives this year as well as she is married to Roger so more involved with the club.

AT THE END OF THE LAST SERIES JACKIE WAS DESPERATELY WORRIED ABOUT THE PLIGHT OF HER SON KYLE. TELL US ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO KYLE AND HOW IT FEELS WITH GARY LUCY HAVING LEFT:
In the storyline they have explained that Kyle went to Australia to retire. But I do miss working with Gary Lucy - he was a great son!

TELL US ABOUT HER RELATIONSHIP WITH ROGER AND HOW IT IS DEVELOPING?
Roger asks Jackie to move in with him, and they then take the next logical step - marriage! But it doesn't end up as rosy as you first think.

YOU ARE STILL LOOKING AFTER BABY PADDY - TELL US ABOUT THE BABIES WHO PLAY PADDY:
Paddy is actually played by twins called James and Edward and they are both wonderful - they make us all feel very broody!

WHAT DO YOU MOST LIKE ABOUT THE CHARACTER YOU PLAY?
I like the fact that she's a very strong woman and won't stand for any nonsense. She tries to help Roger with decisions and wants to help Roger and his son have a better relationship.

WHAT DID YOU DO BETWEEN THE TWO SERIES?
I had a holiday and did a six part series in Manchester - Jane Hall's Big Bad Bus Ride, playing a bus driver! It was great fun - I think it is due out on air quite soon.

FOOTBALLERS' WIVES IS FAMOUS FOR THE COSTUMES AND GLAMOUR - DO YOU HAVE SOME GOOD OUTFITS TO WEAR IN THIS NEXT SERIES?
I love working on this programme and you do get to wear some brilliant outfits - Sarah Arthur our Costume Designer knows exactly what Jackie wears! It's a lot of fun finding out what she is about to wear next.

DID YOU BUY ANY OF THE OUTFITS FROM THE LAST SERIES?
I like the clothes Jackie Pascoe wears so much that at the end of the last series I bought quite a few of the outfits from the costume department.

ARE YOU HOPING TO GET YOUR HANDS ON ANY OF YOUR OUTFITS FROM THIS SERIES?
I'm hoping to buy some of Jackie's clothes from this series.

DO YOU SUPPORT A FOOTBALL TEAM?
I am an Arsenal supporter!!

WHAT ARE YOU HOPING TO DO AFTER FINISHING FILMING THE SERIES?
I am doing an episode of "New Tricks" and then some time off!

HAVE YOU ANY LONG TERM GOALS OR AMBITIONS FOR THE FUTURE?
I'd love to do a voice over for a cartoon film!
