Izzie was a popular teacher with bags of charisma and a ‘sod the rules’ approach. She’s also a single mum with two teenage daughters of her own at the school – Mika and Chlo. Her good friends include fellow teachers Lorna and Tom but their friendships are tested when hidden feelings between Tom and Izzie are revealed. Tom leaves Lorna to live with Izzie and they are overjoyed when they find out Izzie is pregnant. Sadly Izzie loses the baby when she falls after a disagreement with Lorna. The three reconcile on a country break where Lorna offers the couple her blessing before killing herself. Izzie is later fatally stabbed by Jed Seddon after she runs to protect Jack after Lorna’s memorial at the school.
