Stacey is a pretty down-to-earth girl who loves her mum, uncle and best mate Nessa. Stacey's been engaged a few times but this comes from her sweet naivety of love more than anything else! Stacey loves Gavin to bits but was worried about living in Essex after they married.


Smithy is Gavin best mate from way back. He's a plumber who loves food and beer! Smithy has an on-going flirtation with Gavin's mum, Pam, but his true love interest is the unseen, nearly eighteen, Lucy. Smithy has slept with Nessa and regretted it! (and not just the once!)


Nessa is a incomparable woman with an extraordinary life history! She is Stacey's best mate. Among other jobs, Nessa works on "the slots" in Barry's Premier Amusement Arcade and is a blunt woman full of down-beat wisdom. She gave Smithy a night to remember, but a later liaison resulted in pregnancy and some serious decisions!
