Daughter of Val Lambert. Not alot is known about her other than she is younger than Paul. As of the 21st August 2005 her family no longer know where she lives other turning up at her address in Newcastle to find that she had run off with no forwarding address and a whole host of people looking for her as she had taken their money. Her father could be Jimmy Pepper but that is looking doubtful following her last mention.
