Jennifer "Jen" Gilmore, played by Amy Downham, debuted on-screen during the episode airing on 13 April 2012. On 8 April 2012, Susan Hill from Daily Star announced the character's arrival. Downham's casting was later announced by her management; who also confirmed that Jen is a regular character.

Characterisation Edit

Will Martin from CultBox said that Jen is a "bohemian" teacher and a "fiery newcomer". Hill reported that Jen would soon become romantically involved with her pupil Tilly Evans (Lucy Dixon).

Arrival Edit

Dixon told Daniel Kilkelly of Digital Spy that Jen arrives to view an art event organised by Tilly. Jen catches Tilly's attention and she wants to find out more about her. Dixon explained that Jen is an art teacher and "she gives her blunt opinion" on Tilly's work; which gets the pair of to a "bad start". However, they meet again and Jen invites Tilly along to Crosby Beach to view Another Place

Departure Edit

A year later, Tilly overhears Jen calling Esther unstable and a freak, and so Tilly and Esther plot their revenge. They sabotage Jen's presentation by adding photos of her and Tilly together, which she unknowingly shows during an open evening (to an audience which includes new head teacher Patrick Blake) and she is fired. Tilly, Esther, Ruby and Sinead then get her arrested, and her and Tilly finally apologise to each other as she is taken away.
