Margolyes has joined the cast as Rose, Colin’s nan who has decided to get a job on the tills at Valco; Tompkinson as Brian, Valco’s new pharmacist who has pretentions to be a doctor, although Valco’s new pharmacy counter is the closest he’ll get; Carroll as Harry, who at the age of 16 is Valco’s newest – and smartest – employee, the only problem is that he know it; and Bea as Charlotte, the hopeless daughter and heiress of the man who owns Valco and daddy has decided that Gavin is the one to show her the ropes.
“We’re really pleased that Trollied will be back for a fourth series on Sky 1″, said Jon Mountague, Sky’s Commissioning Editor. “Customers certainly have a treat in store as we welcome some great new additions to our favourite supermarket Valco.”
While Miriam Margolyes added: “I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of Trollied, such a popular and well-loved series. I can’t wait to get stuck in to playing the part of Rose – she’s blunt, straight talking and mischievous; you could say – no acting required!”
