...although it was a stage name which she adopted, discarding the rather more prosaic Doreen.

Jolene's ample bosom has soothed many a fevered male brow, and she finally settled with Sid Perks in her spiritual home, The Bull.

Innovative and exciting, she's been largely responsible for the pub's revival with her introduction of line dancing, internet services and her daughter Fallon's pet project, Upstairs@the Bull.

But all the bounce went out of her when Sid died unexpectedly in the summer of 2010. She seriously questioned whether she wanted to keep on with the pub that had been such a happy home and workplace, until a burgeoning relationship with Kenton Archer put more spring in her (shuffle) step. They married in November 2013.

Kenton, you daft thing...

  • Dislikes - Spoilsports
  • Highs - 'That' shower scene with Sid
  • Lows - Her overwhelming grief over Sid's death
