Characters & Actors

Jayne Ashbourne as Sally Benn

Sally Benn (played by Jayne Ashbourne)


Sally is an infectiously bubbly solicitor with a joie-de-vivre and a natural warmth. Nothing fazes Sally; she's seen all forms of low-life criminals and believes that they're all human beings at heart.

A loving wife and mother of two, Sally's schoolteacher husband is her best friend and soul mate, but has long stopped meeting her sexual needs. Naturally flirtatious, Sally craves attention from men and has no qualms about seeking occasional excitement outside her marriage.
