Steph Haydock

Steph Haydock


Steph has little control over her classes, limited respect from the pupils and is a pretty hopeless teacher. Whilst this does bother her deep down, she manages to remain in denial about her failings. Her mother's maxim of 'treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen' never really worked for Steph as she threw herself at a succession of suitors. Steph might not think much of Rachel but she's a devoted and loyal friend to Kim and Grantly. In fact most of the staff are very fond of her and they turn a blind eye to the brutal fact that she's a rubbish French teacher. Her latest romantic escapades see her with the charming Ollie, and Steph is soon smitten. But the course to true love is never easy...

Denise Welch

Denise is married to actor Tim Healy and has two children. She's appeared in many TV programmes including Byker Grove, Coronation Street, Holby City, and regularly appears on ITV show Loose Women.
