Lindsey was an old "schoolfriend" of Beth Sutherland's who she was at Weatherfield Comprehensive with and who she met again at a reunion for the class of 1991, held in Nick's Bistro in June 2016. Beth had been reluctant to attend, not keen to bump into Lindsey again as she was an old nemesis of hers who had always looked down her nose at her, but Kirk pushed her into going, saying that he would accompany her in support.

The first person they met was Dom, an old boyfriend of Beth's, who went quiet when Beth asked if "Lindsey the louse" had come along and excused himself to take a phone call. When Beth did bump into Lindsey, she was shocked to find out that she and Dom were now married. Lindsey hadn't changed one iota and boasted to Beth (or "Bess" as she deliberately called her) about her own significant progress in life, saying that they lived in a converted monastery near Gatwick Airport as they needed the travel connections for their working life, she being very big in stretch covers. She wasn't pleased to find out that Beth and Dom used to be an item, making up catty untruthful reminisces that people had school had reckoned that Beth would be pregnant at sixteen and on heroin at twenty. Stung by her comments, Beth made up an entirely fictitious life for herself, boasting of their penthouse flat at Weatherfield Quays with its heart-shaped jacuzzi and surround-sound system. Sensing a weakness, Lindsey turned her attention to Kirk and when he blurted out that he was in packing, Beth quickly converted the statement to saying that it was the "Paquin" health centre where he worked as a chiropractor, a lie backed up by Steph Britton who was waiting tables and had taken a dislike to Lindsey. The lady herself wasn't convinced and called Beth out on her tales. Kirk prompted her to tell the truth and Beth did, saying that although they might not have much and Kirk was as "daft as a brush", he was a decent person and the two of them were truly happy with each other, which was something that Lindsey could only dream of. Behind her back, Dom grinned, showing that Beth's summary of their own marriage was spot on, while Steph cheered on the outburst. Humiliated, Lindsey stalked out with Dom sheepishly following.
