Brenda Gilroy

Siblings: Alec Gilroy (half-brother, same father)

Played by: Louisa Rix
Cruise video, December 1995

Alec's younger half-sister, who appears on stage as Melody Lane. She can sing, play keyboards and has a ventriloquism act - all of which she does rather badly.

Alec's father left Alec's mother for Brenda's mother when he was only a little lad, and they only found out about each other and met when Brenda was 26.

Brenda claims her real talent lies in being a meduim - she claims she has 'the gift', and will contact loved ones 'on the other side' - for a price !

NB: The programme credits named this character as Melody Lane, not Brenda Gilroy
