Background Edit

Bev was raised in Cheshire, by a local businessman and a Tory Councillor (so lying runs in the genes!). Bev was married to a wealthy art dealer – but he died from alcohol poisoning, after gambling away their joint bank account.

Sentence Edit

Bev and partner-in-crime Phyl Oswyn, shared non-existent shares in a Costa del Sol golf course and ran bogus charities – apparently to aid Spanish orphans.

Whilst in Larkhall Edit

Bevfirst appeared Series 5, mainly that of comic relief in the usually dark storylines. She and Phyl Oswyn (Stephanie Beacham) were together known as the "Costa Cons". Bev and Phyl were successful con artists and managed to con many inmates, a notable example is when Bev and Phyl make Denny Blood (Alicya Eyo) believe that Bev is a medium. After conning Sylvia Hollamby (Helen Fraser), they are transferred to an open prison but return shortly after and face the hardships of Larkhall once again. When Phyl becomes Top Dog, Bev winds up with a heroin addiction, which almost kills her. They continue to trick most inmates and officers on G-Wing. Bev undergoes a major makeover during Series 7. She and Phyl later escape to Marbella but Bev is caught and sent back to Larkhall. The two remain until the final episode of the series in which they help Janine Nebeski (Nicola Stapleton) to give birth.
