- Lolly Whitehill - (best friend) Ann-Marie was Lolly's best friend and co-worker at Free Weekly. When Lolly was fired as her delusions become more apparent, Ann-Marie decided it was best for Lolly to be taken to a care home as Lolly's family did not live nearby and Ann-Marie herself was pregnant and so could not care for Lolly.
- Unnamed child - Ann-Marie is pregnant, and Lolly suggests she could look after the child; however Ann-Marie knows that this is not a good idea due to Lolly's poor grip on reality.
