Jackie Pascoe/Webb

REMIND OF US WHAT WAS HAPPENING THE LAST TIME WE SAW JACKIE?
Jackie was going through a spot of bother with her step-son Seb who was trying to break her and Roger up by seducing her. It didn't work and Roger kicked him out of their house and their lives. Roger and Jackie's relationship is still strong, despite events with Seb. It is a relief for Jackie but filming those scenes was great fun. Tom Swire, who played Seb is a great lad.

ARE THERE ANY SEXY SUPRISES FOR JACKIE THIS SERIES?
Jackie has just one surprise involving a party being held at the new Chairman Garry Ryan's house. Jackie gets herself in to a mischievous situation at the hands of the randy Garry! It was terribly funny. And Nicholas Ball who plays Garry and I had a lot of fun filming it.

DO YOU THINK JACKIE HAS CHANGED AT ALL THIS SERIES?
I don't think Jackie has changed at all between the last two series - now she is with Roger she has a very strong sense of family values and is very supportive and dedicated to Roger.

DOES JACKIE HAVE STORIES WITH TRE AND LIBERTY, THE NEW COUPLE?
Jackie doesn't have a huge amount to do with Tre and Liberty, but she does try to look after Liberty and make sure she settles in with the rest of the wives.

DOES JACKIE STILL PLAY A "MOTHER HEN" ROLE TO THE OTHER WIVES?
Jackie does her best to avoid conflict and keep the other wives egos under wraps!

WHAT DID YOU DO BETWEEN SERIES 4 AND 5?
I've had a few holidays with the family between the series which have been really enjoyable. I try and make the most of the time off from filming Footballers' Wives as shooting Footie Wives is very long and tiring and keeps me away from my family.

DO YOU HAVE SOME GOOD OUTFITS TO WEAR THIS SERIES?
The costume department always tend to dress Jackie in some really classy outfits so I've been pretty happy with everything so far.

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE STORYLINE FROM LAST SERIES?
The relationship with Seb and Jackie was fun and interesting to play. I felt sorry for Jackie and what she has to put up with from Seb but Tom Swire was lovely to work with and we had some good fun doing those scenes.

WHAT STORYLINES CAN WE LOOK FORWARD TO WITH JACKIE THIS SERIES?
Jackie has some interesting scenes with Garry Ryan. Her relationship with Roger is very stable but Garry attempts to try and liven it up!

YOU ARE LOOKING FABULOUS - WHAT ARE YOUR SECRETS TO LOOKING GOOD?
It is important to keep fit - I try to look after myself and watch what I eat. I also have regular facials and always drink lots of water.

HOW DO YOU STAY IN SHAPE - DO YOU HAVE A STRICT EXERCISE/EATING REGIME?
I try to exercise regularly. I don't follow a strict diet but I do watch what I eat - I love fruit and veg!

WHAT BEAUTY PRODUCTS DO YOU SWEAR BY?
Dermalogica and Jan Marini Products.
