Kay Mellor’s famous family – including daughters Gaynor and Yvonne | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Kay Mellor OBE, the English actress, scriptwriter and director, died on Sunday, May 15, leaving behind her husband, two daughters and four grandchildren, and a strong legacy in production. Following in her showbiz footsteps are her two daughters, Gaynor Faye and Yvonne Francas.

After falling pregnant at 16 with her first child Yvonne, Kay married the father, Anthony Mellor, when she was just 17.

On their wedding day, the vicar told her “it won’t last.” But the couple enjoyed 50 years of marriage until her “sudden and untimely” death last weekend.

It wasn’t long after they tied the knot that they welcomed their second daughter, Gaynor, in 1971 when Kay was 19.

Kay’s 30-year-career penning and acting in a number of hit TV shows may have inspired her daughters, as both have made a reputable mark in the entertainment industry, too.

Who is Yvonne Francas?

Born in 1967, Yvonne, now 55, is an actress and producer most well known for Strictly Confidential, Scott & Bailey, and the BBC drama series, The Syndicate.

As well as The Syndicate, Yvonne also produced Fat Friends, another series written by her late mother.

Her producing career isn’t just limited to these shows; Yvonne was also the executive producer of BBC’s drama series The Chase as well as In The Club – both co-written by her mother and sister, Gaynor.

According to Yvonne’s Linkedin profile, she has been an executive producer for Rollem Productions Company Limited, set up by Kay, since February 2020.

Who is Gaynor Faye?

Born on August 26, 1971, Kay’s second-born Gaynor is a 50-year-old actress and writer, best known for playing Judy Mallett in Coronation Street from 1995 to 1999, and more recently, Megan Macey in Emmerdale from 2012 to 2019.

Gaynor’s career, like Yvonne, has woven her own work with her late mother’s, having starred in a number of Kay’s productions as well as co-writing some of the pieces.

Gaynor starred in Fat Friends, as well as the stage version of Kay’s drama Band of Gold, of which she left Emmerdale to take up in 2019.

Gaynor said, at the time: “I was working on Emmerdale and got involved in workshopping Band of Gold and people just loved it… absolutely loved it.

“Then I got asked if I would be in it, but I was still in Emmerdale, so then I had to make the choice whether or not I was going to leave Emmerdale or not. That was a big choice to make.

“She really wanted me in it. She really liked my version of Rose so, for her, she really wanted me to do it. But it was a big decision I had to make and I didn’t make it lightly.”

This decision came after Gaynor said she wouldn’t star in any more of her mother’s productions, having also starred in The Chase, which she and her mother co-created in 2006.

Gaynor said: “I love everything my mum does. She writes brilliant ­dialogue and great characters, especially strong women.

“But I’ve been in her stuff and I’ve made a conscious decision I wasn’t going to do any more.

“I made it as an actress in my own right and I didn’t want anyone thinking that I just did her stuff.”

Acting aside, Gaynor also participated in ITV’s Dancing on Ice with skate partner Daniel Whiston in 2006, and was the first ever to be crowned champion.

In September 2010, Gaynor also took part in ITV’s Loose Women as a guest panellist, followed by Lorraine a year after.

Most recently, Gaynor played Cheryl Armitage in the BBC One drama The Syndicate in March 2021.

Are Yvonne and Gaynor married?

Gaynor lives with long-term partner Mark Pickering, the journalist and broadcast commentator, in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

The couple have two children, Lily Mae and Oliver.

However, it’s not publicly known whether or not Yvonne is married, but her last name could suggest she might be.

Details also haven’t been published on her children, however, as per sources, Kay has four grandchildren; two of which would belong to Yvonne.

Amandine Petit, 24, looked amazing as she took to the red carpet in a see-through duck egg blue dress.

The dress’ ruffled detailing parted at the front, exposing the model’s toned pins.

She represented France at Miss Universe 2020, where she placed in the Top 21.

Heard gave Depp big knife while she says he was violent to her | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

The actress told lawyers she did not fear her partner would stab her with the blade. Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez yesterday asked the actress about the knife she bought him for his birthday in 2012.

It was at this time she claims she began suffering physical abuse at his hands.

Ms Vasquez asked: “It was during this cycle of violence that you gave Mr Depp a knife?”

Heard, 36, replied: “I gave him a knife.” She added: “I wasn’t worried he was going to stab me with it.”

Jurors were shown the blade.

Depp, 58, is suing his ex-wife for libel over a 2018 article she wrote in The Washington Post, which his lawyers say falsely implies he physically and sexually abused her while they were together.

Ms Vasquez later played an audio recording of a fight between the couple in which both appeared to ridicule the other’s acting career.

On the recording, Heard said: “You’re a joke. You’re a joke.”

Depp said: “Your jealousy is so tragic.”

Later, Heard denied hitting her ex-girlfriend Tasya van Ree, and pulling off her necklace, at Seattle airport in 2009. She was not prosecuted over this claim.

The hearing in Fairfax, Virginia, continues.

Vardys make early exit as Wayne and Jamie clash | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

The couple did not return after an afternoon break on the sixth day of the Wagatha Christie libel trial. It followed Coleen Rooney’s husband Wayne taking the stand for the first time and insisting that he was asked to talk to Jamie about his wife’s “media activities” during the Euro 2016 tournament.

Then in a dramatic development outside the court, Jamie’s representative issued a statement on behalf of the Leicester City footballer, 35, saying: “Wayne is talking nonsense.”

The statement added: “He must be confused because he never spoke to me about issues concerning Becky’s media work at Euro 2016. There was nothing to speak about.”

Wayne, 36, had told the court he was asked by then England manager Roy Hodgson and assistant manager Gary Neville to chat to Jamie and to request his wife to “calm down”.

He said: “Becky’s media activities were causing problems and distractions which the FA wanted to avoid.

“They asked me, as captain, would I be able to speak to Mr Vardy on issues regarding his wife.” Hugh Tomlinson QC, for Rebekah, said to Wayne: “Ask his wife to calm down? She wasn’t dancing on tables.”

He replied: “No, she wasn’t, as far as I’m aware.”

Wayne continued: “I carried out that instruction. It was an awkward situation but I felt it was in the best interests of the team.” He said he “100 per cent” spoke to Jamie but did not know if he spoke to his wife.

Coleen, 36, posted on social media in October 2019 she had carried out a “sting operation” and accused Rebekah, 40, of leaking “false stories” about her private life.

Wayne, England’s all-time record goalscorer, said he had no idea then about his wife’s social media claims.

But he added: “I now understand that Coleen uploaded various fake posts, including one about gender selection, one about returning to TV and one about our basement flooding, all of which were false, all of which were accessible only by Becky’s Instagram account.”

Rebekah denies leaking stories to the media and is suing for libel while Coleen defends the claim on the basis her post was “substantially true”.

The hearing continues.
