Tess Collins
Tess's life was surprisingly aimless until she landed a job with Florence and Fred, tending to handy work around the house and cleaning up the messes that Jemima created. It soon became evident, however, that Tess was just as incompetent as the reckless maid.

Having lost her mother to alcohol, Tess wasn't very tolerant of Robert Haleton's repeated alcohol abuse, and eventually cut off ties with him completely, an act which convinced Robert to finally check into rehab. When he left, he disappeared and, despite Tess's attempts to reconnect, he was nowhere to be found.

After a year in prison, Tess was released early, much to the outrage of her fellow citizens, and was soon in for a shock when her brother, Tom, turned up on her doorstep with the news that their father had died.

Tom had inherited a house from their father and so he and Tess moved in and set to work searching for a lodger to fill the empty room. They eventually found Jerry, whom Tess developed a slight crush on.

Soon Tess learned that she too would inherit something from her father—a lump sum of £46,000,000. After learning of Florence's inability to pay her mortgage and the danger that she could lose her home, Tess bought the house as a gift to Florence, and continues to work there as Florence's trusty handyman.
