Introduced as the owner of a clothing firm who gave a contract to Underworld owners Carla and Liam Connor. Over the course of two years he courted and eventually married Carla, found out about Carla’s affair with Liam and planned revenge by ordering a hit man to run Liam down on Tony’s stag night. Not only a murderer, he was a ruthless businessman. In 2008, he planned to expand Underworld and to do that he wanted to buy The Kabin and the garage. When that failed, he planned to demolish a terraced street where Jed Stone lived. Evicted Jed found himself lodging with Emily Bishop which infuriated Tony. On Christmas Day 2008, Jed accused Tony of murdering Liam. Tony strangled Jed, who managed to survive. Carla found about Liam’s death and left Tony, who began a relationship with Liam’s widow Maria. He then proposed and she accepted. In October 2009, Roy Cropper discovered Tony was a murderer and Tony tried to kill him as well. Guilty, he eventually confessed to the murder. In May 2010, he returned and held Carla, Hayley and Maria hostage in Underworld before setting the place alight. Only Tony perished.

39. Rosie Webster 1990-2012 (44 votes)
The eldest daughter of Kevin and Sally, born in the back of Don Brennan’s car on Rosamund Street – hence the name ‘Rosie’! She gave up her education at Oakhill for a modelling career. She’s had relationships with Craig Harris, Luke Strong and Jason Grimshaw. Her biggest regret was having an affair with teacher John Stape. Because the affair ruined John’s relationship with Fiz Brown, John sought revenge on Rosie by kidnapping her and holding her captive in his grandmother’s attic. After many agonising weeks she was freed and John was imprisoned. To many of the neighbours she was seen as a minx and a bitch who disrespected her parents and saw herself as a cut above the street residents. She was known for her unique view of life. She left for London in 2012 to pursue a career in reality television.
