Everything's just so 'lovely' in Poppy's little world where nothing bad happens and if it does she'll find a way to flip it around. Nothing is more important than friends and family to her, they're the centre of her world.
The best thing about Poppy? How she brings out the best in everyone. With the exception of Shirley Carter. We'd advise Pops to tone down her sunshine and lollipops demeanour when surly Shirley is around...
Poppy packed her bags and moved back to her mum's in Essex when she discovered that best mate Jodie'd kissed her boyfriend Anthony. But the lure of Walford was too great and she came back to spread sunshine in Albert Square again, bagging herself a new boyfriend, Fatboy, in the process.
Saving up for a place together, they continued to save for their dream pad together, Poppy found a seemingly perfect new build not far from her parents, outside London. Poppy ignored Fatboy’s reservations about her idealistic views for their future in the suburbs and he eventually exploded. He told Poppy that he didn’t want any of that and shocked, Poppy ran off in tears. Fatboy rushed after her but Poppy ended their relationship leaving Fatboy stunned.
