Rebecca "Becky" Palmer is the daughter of Claire and the late Jeff Palmer. She was still getting over the loss of her dad, an RAF lieutenant killed in a hangar fire, when her mum (who she shared a close relationship with) met Des Barnes in 1996. Mother and daughter moved into his house, 6 Coronation Street, soon after.
The pair's relationship came to an abrupt end in March 1997 when Des tried to get local barmaid Samantha Failsworth into bed. Claire immediately dumped him and moved out with Becky in tow, leaving her very upset.
Her hobbies included sports and the Guides.
