Jessica Bramley was a hairdresser who was interviewed by Nick Tilsley and David Platt in February 2019 when they were taking on staff to work in their new "hipster's" barber's shop in the Redbank Apartments building.
The two brothers had decided that for their business model to be successful they had to employ good-looking women who were "well-stacked". Consequently in the interviews the scoring paid as much attention to looks as skill, at least on Nick's part. They met Jessica as one of several interviewees in the Rovers Return Inn where she spoke of the rapport that she tried with uncommunicative male customers. Nick was willing to score her 8.5/10 but the practical David pointed out that she was still only an apprentice and they needed a better skillset.
Their efforts came to nothing when Leanne Battersby and Shona Ramsey heard what they were up to and interrupted the interviewing process, telling the outraged women - and one man - exactly what was going on. All the candidates upped and left the premises in high dudgeon.
