Lorraine Bird

Lorraine Bird

Mandy's P.A/Office staff

Portrayed by Lorraine Cheshire

First appearance: Series one, episode one

Lorraine is good at her job as Mandy's P.A mostly because she is a right nosey parker. Efficient gatekeeper to her head teacher, Lorraine believes that she runs the school herself and that without her the entire place would fall apart. Lorraine is the keeper of secrets and the spreader of gossip but she is extremely loyal to Ackley Bridge College – even if she doesn’t entirely believe in what she thinks is all this happy-clappy integration nonsense!

Lorraine Cheshire plays Lorraine Bird in the hit Channel 4 drama Ackley Bridge
