BBC Breakfast Interview
Their best friend, Teddy Roxton (Robson Green), who they’ve known since they were teenagers, and with whom they’ve shared a lot of history, is married to Bel’s sister, Leanne (Kelly Harrison). Now that Bel has a lot of time on her hands, Teddy persuades her to come back to the salon to rescue it from her family, who are running it into the ground.
Leanne is less than impressed that Bel is back at the salon – especially since Mum Ivy-Rae (Sue Johnston) and sisters Tina (Lisa Riley) and Heidi (Vicky Myers) are waxing lyrical on how Bel is back where she belongs.
Whilst Bel is busy giving the salon a makeover, Wes is doing up a kitchen for a personal trailer Lorelei (Madeleine Mantock). They make a deal: she gives him discounted training sessions and he gives her a discount on her new kitchen.
Bel films one of Disney’s beauty pageants to help showcase the salon’s services and then arranges a salon opening to help attract new customers. This infuriates Leanne and fuels their sibling rivalry.
