Atkinson: It's the end of an era

Rebecca Atkinson said the final series of Shameless is very 'fast-paced'

Rebecca Atkinson has promised Shameless fans won't be disappointed by its final series.

The actress has played feisty Karen McGuire on the Channel 4 hit for a decade - and said the last instalment was "a celebration of everything we've done".

She told the Daily Star: "When I look back to the original group of us in series one I just think what an amazing journey we've all been on and what an experience to be part of.

"It's the end of an era - but fans won't be disappointed. This series is just as good. It's very fast-paced and of course there is lots of the usual Chatsworth chaos!"

The last series sees the return of favourites such as Lip Gallagher (Jody Latham) and Fiona Gallagher (Anne-Marie Duff).

"Anne-Marie was really positive and excited to be there. She wanted to finish what she started, you now. It was great to have all the old characters back," Rebecca said.

Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
