Confident, dynamic and independent, Alf's daughter Ruth 'Roo' Stewart has come a long way since the troubled teenage years which saw her not only fly through messy relationships but also give birth to daughter Martha (whom she gave up for adoption).
Although she's done her fair share of travelling, Roo has stayed in close contact with Aunt Morag and, in spite of everything, is on good terms with dad Alf, too.
A born survivor, with a gift for spinning a story and glossing over the less glamorous moments of her life, Roo is sometimes difficult to read: she has a knack for accentuating the positive, even when the reality is bleak. She also has a great knack for telling people what they want to hear, which has more often than not been her downfall.
