BBC One is the flagship television channel of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Channel Islands. It was launched on 2 November 1936 as the BBC Television Service, and was the world's first regular television service with a high level of image resolution. It was renamed BBC TV in 1960, using this name until the launch of sister channel BBC2 in 1964, whereupon the BBC TV channel became known as BBC1.

Buster Brady is a lovable rogue. He's been Dermot's best friend since they were young. Buster's mother ran off just after he was born, and his father is a useless layabout, so most of the time - when not in prison - Buster can be found at the Browns' house. Agnes considers him to be "kind of like the son I never wanted".
Winnie McGoogan (Eilish O'Carroll). Winnie's certainly not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but has been a good friend to Agnes ever since they first met. Her husband Jacko has a bad back - if someone mentions work he can't get it off the bed! Their daughter, Sharon, is still good friends with Cathy, having grown up together.
