Finn Rosanna Atkins (born 21 June 1989) is a British film, television and stage actress.

Early life[edit]

Atkins was born in Nottingham and grew up in the Clifton area, where she attended Greencroft Primary School, Farnborough School and High Pavement College.[2] She has been a member of the Television Workshop since she was at primary school.[2]


Atkins’ breakthrough came early, in Shane Meadows‘ 2002 film Once Upon a Time in the Midlands, in which she played Marlene, the daughter of Shirley (Shirley Henderson) and Jimmy (Robert Carlyle). Although opinions on the film were divided, everyone seemed to agree about Atkins’ contribution. Evening Standard journalist Neil Norman, in his review of the film in the Daily Mail, stated that it contained “good performances from everyone — and a stunning one from 12-year-old Finn Atkins… she can hold the screen like a pro and takes a close-up better than many actors twice her age.”[3] In The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw wrote of the film: “there is a cracking turn from Finn Atkins as Shirley’s daughter…[4] a bouquet is due.”[5] Whilst The Telegraphs Sukhdev Sandhu exclaimed: “Finn Atkins is superb as Shirley Henderson’s whey-faced daughter.”[6]

In January 2009 she appeared as teenage prostitute Marissa in the BBC One soap opera EastEnders.[2] She has since become a regular in Sky1‘s hit comedy drama ‘Starlings‘ where she plays Charlie Starling; the football mad daughter to Jan & Terry Starling (Lesley Sharp & Brendan Coyle).

Sheree Victoria Murphy (born 22 August 1975) is an English actress and television presenter, best known for her roles as Tricia Dingle in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale, Eva Strong in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks and Dakota Davies in the Australian soap opera Neighbours.

Early life[edit]

Born in Stoke Newington, north London,[1] Murphy was the middle child and only girl in a family of five children.[2] The family lived in a council house, and she was educated from aged 9 at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. Murphy then attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School.[2]

Murphy’s first part was in the musical The Rink at the Cambridge Theatre, aged 12.[2] She didn’t work professionally again until Emmerdale, working her way though school from aged 14 as a hairdressers assistant. She also worked front of house in various north London theatres.[2]


Murphy’s first screen role was in Salome’s Last Dance in 1988, a film directed by Ken Russell. Her first TV appearance was a small but notable role as a female mugger in Only Fools and Horses 1996 Christmas episode Heroes and Villans. She soon landed what may be her best-known role as Tricia Dingle on Emmerdale, which she played from 1998 to 2004. It was announced in late 2003 that Murphy would leave Emmerdale in December 2003, so that she could spend more time with her family and two young children, and her character was duly killed off.

Following a six-year career break to bring up her family, Murphy appeared in The Royal before winning the part of Eva Strong in Hollyoaks.

In November and December 2005, Murphy appeared on the ITV reality show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, finishing second to Carol Thatcher. She was noted for being “scared of everything”, and for her sweet persona; as well as embarrassing her husband Harry Kewell with comments such as “he’s got a peachy bum”.[citation needed] Murphy presented the ITV spin-off series for series 6 with Phillip Schofield. In November 2007, she presented This Morning‘s coverage of the seventh series every weekday morning.

In 2005 and 2006, Murphy presented ITV2‘s coverage of the British Soap Awards. Murphy hosted Footballers’ Cribs for MTV UK and VH1 UK, and was a regular on ITV‘s Loose Women (2006–2007), returning in 2012 for a single episode to celebrate 40 years of Emmerdale and a further single episode in July 2015.

In January 2007, Murphy co-hosted ITV2‘s Soapstar Superstar: Bonus Tracks with Mark Durden-Smith and also starred as the ‘hidden’ celebrity in a 2007 episode of the CBBC show Hider in the House.

Murphy joined the presenting team for Channel 5‘s Cowboy Builders. During the 2010 World Cup, Murphy fronted a ‘World Cup Fever’ campaign for Gala Bingo.[3]

On 16 June 2014, it was announced that Murphy had joined the cast of the Australian soap opera Neighbours playing an old acquaintance of Paul Robinson called Dakota Davies.[4]

In 2015, she participated in Celebrity MasterChef on BBC One. Since 2016, she has presented the daytime BBC One series Yes Chef!

Personal life[edit]

They have four children together: son, Taylor (born 2001); and daughters, Ruby (born 17 June 2003), Matilda (born 19 March 2008) and Dolly (born 14 January 2012).

Pauline Perpetua Quirke (born 8 July 1959) is an English actress, known for her role as Sharon Theodopolopodous in the long-running comedy series Birds of a Feather from 1989 to 1998, and again since 2014. For this role, she won the 1990 British Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. She was nominated for the BAFTA TV Award for Best Actress for her role in the 1996 BBC miniseries The Sculptress. Her other television credits include Maisie Raine (1998–99), Down to Earth (2000–03), Emmerdale (2010–12) and Broadchurch (2013–15).


Quirke began her career as a child actress aged eight with an appearance in Dixon of Dock Green. Another early role was that of an autistic teenager in the 1975 TV drama Jenny Can’t Work Any Faster.

By 1976 she had her own TV show, Pauline’s Quirkes, on Thames Television, which featured pop music, teenage topics, and comedy sketches. In 1976 she played the lead role in the “Special Offer” episode of ATV’s Beasts, by Nigel Kneale, also starring Geoffrey Bateman, Wensley Pithey and Ruth Goring. Quirke also had a small role in the movie The Elephant Man in 1980, with future Emmerdale colleague Lesley Dunlop. Quirke played Veronica in Shine on Harvey Moon, a British television series made by Central Television for ITV from 8 January 1982 to 23 August 1985 and briefly revived in 1995 by Meridian.

Quirke’s big break came in 1989, when she began playing the part of Sharon Theodopolopodous in the BBC sitcom Birds of a Feather with Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph. She remained with the series until its end in 1998 after nine series and over 100 episodes.

In 1994, Quirke appeared in the Surf Advert with Linda Robson. In 1996, she starred in the BBC television adaptation of The Sculptress by Minette Walters, receiving much critical acclaim for her performance, including a British Academy TV Award nomination for Best Actress. When Birds of a Feather ended, Quirke began playing DI Maisie Raine in Maisie Raine, a drama series for BBC One, which ran in 1998 and 1999.

From 2000 to 2003, Quirke starred opposite Warren Clarke in the BBC series Down to Earth. She made a return to comedy in 2000 when she starred with Neil Stuke, Robert Daws and Pippa Haywood in BBC sitcom Office Gossip. After a promising start with over six million viewers, the show found its ratings dropped and it was cancelled after only one series. However, Quirke was nominated for Most Popular Comedy Performer at the National Television Awards for her role. In 2002, she starred alongside Nitin Ganatra in Being April, a comedy drama for BBC One. Quirke appeared in Carrie’s War in 2004 and in 2005, played a major role in The Bill (a show she claimed she longed to be on saying I must be the only actor in the UK that hasn’t been in The Bill!), as Cath Wilson, a woman wrongly convicted of murdering a child.

In 2006, Quirke played Colleen McCabe in The Thieving Headmistress and in 2008, she appeared in an episode of My Family as Sharon the Bank Robber. Quirke has frequently been seen in the audience of Strictly Come Dancing and has appeared on its companion show It Takes Two more than once. She was a contestant on BBC’s Celebrity MasterChef in June 2007, but was disqualified for creating a dish that was described by Lloyd Grossman as “in no way resembling a meal”.[1]

In 2009 and 2010, she played the lead role in the BBC daytime drama series Missing as DS Mary Jane “MJ” Croft, head of a Missing Persons Unit. In May 2010, it was announced that Quirke would be joining the rural soap opera Emmerdale as Hazel Rhodes, the mother of established character, Jackson Walsh.[2] Quirke said, “I’ve never done anything like this before so it’s something different for me and I’m very happy to be a part of it.”[2] On 16 May 2011, it was announced that Quirke had decided to quit Emmerdale. Hazel left on 25 January 2012, and Quirke has since said she would like to return.

Since 2013, Quirke recurs as Susan Wright in ITV drama series Broadchurch. Her pet Labrador, Bailey also appears in the programme.

On 2 January 2014, Quirke returned to play Sharon Theodopolopodous when ITV decided to revive Birds of a Feather. The second series premiered on 26 December 2014 and the third on 7 January 2016.[3]

She has been a guest panellist on Loose Women on two occasions.

In 2015, she played the role of Paula Winton in the ten-part comedy thriller You, Me and the Apocalypse for Sky1.[4]
