Jesse Birdsall

Plays
Roger Webb

TELL ME A BIT ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER?
He's an old school football manager.

REMIND US OF THE LAST TIME WE SAW YOUR CHARACTER AT THE END OF SERIES 3?
Kyle had left and Roger invited Jackie to come and live with him.

WHAT DO YOU LEAST LIKE ABOUT THE CHARACTER YOU PLAY?
For humour's sake, I enjoy the fact that he is emotionally incompetent, which really gets him into trouble with Jackie.

WHAT DO YOU MOST LIKE ABOUT THE CHARACTER YOU PLAY?
He doesn't take any shit!

WHAT IS IN STORE FOR YOUR CHARACTER IN THIS FOURTH SERIES - IS THE RELATIONSHIP WITH JACKIE PASCOE GOING TO PROGRESS?
Oh yes. We get married but then things go wrong when my estranged son arrives.

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR SON SEB AND THE RELATIONSHIP ROGER HAS WITH HIM?
It's pretty heated! Roger is desperate for Seb to prove himself and not rely on Roger's position to further his career. And because of that, he is incredibly hard on Seb.

HOW IS THE RELATIONSHIP GOING BETWEEN JACKIE AND ROGER?
Very well, but then it is Footballers' Wives - expect surprises!

WITHOUT REVEALING TOO MUCH, WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE STORYLINE COMING UP AND WHY?
The arrival of Seb and all that it ensues.

THE SHOW IS FAMOUS FOR THE COSTUMES AND GLAMOUR - DO YOU HAVE SOME GOOD OUTFITS TO WEAR IN THIS NEXT SERIES?
I'm too old to wear anything to glamourous!

YOU GOT TO GO TO SPAIN WITH THE FILMING OF THIS SERIES. WHAT WAS IT LIKE?
Very quiet. It was very hot so I took it easy!

HAS YOUR CHARACTER CHANGED AT ALL OR IS THERE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN THE DIRECTION IT IS TAKING?
No, but I am pleased Roger and Jackie are being written-up!

IF YOU COULD INVENT A STORYLINE TO DO WITH YOUR CHARACTER WHAT SITUATION WOULD YOU WRITE?
He goes to live in Jamaica on the beach - perfect!

HAVE YOU HAD A HOLIDAY THIS YEAR - IF SO WHERE DID YOU GO, WHAT WAS IT LIKE?
Yes, we went to Cyprus with some friends - lovely!

DO YOU SUPPORT A FOOTBALL TEAM?
I support Arsenal.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EVER FOOTBALLERS' WIVES MOMENT?
Kissing Jackie of course!

WHAT ARE YOU HOPING TO DO AFTER FINISHING FILMING THE SERIES?
Very little - a holiday would be nice.
