The eldest child of Frank and Monica Gallagher, Fiona has most cause to resent her mother and father for their abysmal parenting skills.

With her hands overflowing as she cares for her five younger siblings, Fiona’s one shining light comes in the form of Steve, until he is forced to leave the estate due to botched drugs deal.

She then strikes up a shaky relationship with Craig Garland. Problem being that Craig’s already married...

An aborted abortion attempt sees Fiona with a child when Steve returns to the estate, disguised as a social worker but still a fugitive, and the three of them escape abroad. Living in Amsterdam, Fiona and Steve marry.

Fiona makes a final return to the estate at the behest of her mother. Worried, for obvious reasons, about the wellbeing of newborn Ben at the mercy of Frank and Monica, she hatches a cunning scheme to gain legal custody of the youngest Gallagher.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, things don’t go to plan...
