Former 'Footballers Wives' star Zoe Lucker has joined the cast of 'Waterloo Road'
Zoe Lucker has joined the cast of 'Waterloo Road'.
The former 'Footballers Wives' actress will play Carol Barry, the wife of a prisoner, who along with her children Barry, Dynasty and Kacey "ruffle plenty of feathers" in the BBC school drama.
Zoe - who has already begun filming in Scotland - said: "Carol and her kids are going to ruffle plenty of feathers in Waterloo Road - you can't trust them as far as you can throw them!
"They're a family of great characters - but you just wouldn't want the Barrys in your neighbourhood!"
The family's introduction storyline sees the Barry children arrive to attend headmaster Michael Byrne's pupil referral unit - but the kids are not very focused on their work.
An insider said: "They could be the school's greatest success story. But they have anything but top grades on their sordid minds."
The show's executive producer Cameron Roach - who previously worked with Zoe on 'Footballer's Wives' - promised the character is very different to her WAG alter ego Tanya Turner.
He said: "This time her character's not about the glamour but keeping the family together."
Barry, Dynasty and Kacey will be played by Carl Au, Abby Mavers and Brogan Ellis.
