"Shirley Stelfox played the part of 'Rose' in series 1, she is widely regarded by fans as the more aggressive and less loving 'Rose'.

Shirley Stelfox (born 11 April 1941) is an English actress, currently best known as busybody Edna Birch in the ITV soap Emmerdale since 2000.
She is also known for playing the first "Rose" in Keeping Up Appearances. She was later replaced by the late Mary Millar."
