  1. Daisy

    Daisy is a fictional character in the British situation comedy, Keeping Up Appearances, portrayed by actress Judy Cornwell. Daisy is the lower-class sister of social-climbing snob Hyacinth Bucket, who lives with her apathetic slob husband, Onslow, promiscuous sister Rose, and her senile father. She is the second-eldest of the four sisters. Daisy is full of life and always smiling, despite picking up her husband's bad habits of sleeping until noon and watching television all day. She persists in trying to get her apathetic husband to have sex with her, and tries to share romantic moments with him, however, her efforts always fail as Onslow prefers to drink beer and watch "racing on the telly". As a result, Daisy tends to lose herself in Mills & Boon romance novels. Onslow and Daisy have one daughter, Stephanie, who has a daughter named Kylie, and only appears in the final episode of series one. It appears that Daisy and her sisters grew up in the neighborhood where she, Onslow, Daddy and Rose currently live. Richard replies when he and Hyacinth arrive in the neighbourhood in an episode, that "he [Daddy] lived there all his life," to which Hyacinth smugly replies, "I prefer people to think I was born in the candlelight supper class."
