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.

The urge to splash out will probably diminish, saving you a significant sum. Money from an inheritance, dividend or royalty payment should be conserved. Having a nest egg will give you a greater measure of freedom. Independence is the best gift you can give yourself. Materialism won't bring you the happiness you seek.More
