Melanie Hill - A Sunderland Lass - Yes

I say yes because although she was born in Brighton she was raised in Sunderland. This is her mother's native city, so yes, Melanie Hill is a Mackem. You can be born anywhere but it is where you are brought up that counts. Lets face it you can't help where the hospitals are ;)

She married actor Sean Bean in 1990 but was divorced in 1997 and they have two daughters.

Sunderland AFC is the football team that Melanie Hill supports :P

Melanie Hill has played so many parts on television programmes so I will list all those that we know of:

01) Melanie played Aveline in the last three series' of Bread.
02) The Bill
03) Holby City
04) Candy Cabs
05) The Thick Of IT
06) Merlin
07) United (about Man Utd)
08) Waterloo Road
09) Hebburn
10) The Syndicate
11) Playing The Field
12) Auf Wiedersehen, Pet
13) Hot Money
14) Juliet Bravo
15) Cape Wrath
16) Emmerdale
17) Coronation Street

Melanie Hill also appeared in three films:
01) Brassed off
02) White Girl
03) Stardust

Here is a picture of Melanie Hill:

Finally, a picture with Roy Cropper in Coronation Street.

The poor lass is all over the news today.
Apparently she is addicted to painkillers, Co-Codamol, to be precise.
Melanie Hill had a hip replacement and went on the drugs to relieve the pain but got hooked.
I hope she is alright.

Yes but this is her profile.
Its hard to believe she played the part of Aveline in Bread all those years ago.
Melanie Hill really is a remarkable actress and I wish her much more success in the future.

She is quite pretty for her age.
I am not saying Melanie Hill is old but just that she is attractive.
I would love to see her dressed in a Sunderland top.

She is very consistent in her acting. Melanie Hill as Avaline in Bread will take some beating.

I can just remember the TV series "Bread" and did know that Aveline was from Sunderland, well one of them :D
I never really noticed Melanie Hill in any other TV show but judging by all those other parts Melanie has played I don't know how.
Nice to see that Melanie Hill is still a massive lads fan.

I am surprised nobody has posted any videos of Melanie Hill yet.
Since she is fondly remembered as Aveline in the TV series "Bread" take a look at this video.
It shows many clips of Aveline as she was in Bread by both the actors who played her.
Melanie Hill is very easy to recognise and is just as gorgeous as the first actress to play the part.
Well done Melanie Hill for your contribution to television history.
The music on the video is Scouting for Girls - She's So Lovely.
