Jean will be most remembered for her ten and a half years appearing as Dolly Skilbeck in Emmerdale. Dolly Skilbeck was one of Emmerdale's most tragic figures. She arrived from Darlington as Dolly Acaster to work at The Woolpack and fell for widower Matt Skilbeck. Her past came back to haunt her, however, when former lover Richard Roper arrived and her dark secret - a baby bom illegitimately and given away for adoption - was revealed.
Dolly married Matt and gave birth to son Sam. She had an affair with timber consultant Stephen Fuller, who tragically died after they split up. Matt eventually left and the marriage was over. More heartache came when Dolly had an affair with crooked councillor Charlie Aindow, became pregnant and decided to have an abortion.
Jean has enjoyed playing a variety of roles in Pantomime around the UK.
