|First||I Was A Hitman For Primrose Dairies|
|Last||How Not to Cry at Weddings|
(2008–2010) Stella is Nora's sister, and first appeared in the 2008 New Years Special, I Was A Hitman for Primrose Dairies as a replacement for the actress Kathy Staff, who was unable to continue her role as Nora owing to ill health. With Nora having departed for Australia, Stella moved in to house-sit for her sister, and has become a new member of the elder women's talking circle. She is a former barmaid and appears to take a more free-spirited approach to life than Nora, as evidenced by her brighter wardrobe and hair. The storyline in her first episode saw her trying to give up smoking, and her yearning for a cigarette has continued unabated into subsequent episodes.
