Janice 'Jan' Glover first appeared in August 1994 with her husband Ned and their children. Jan had married Ned in 1971 and the couple had three children: Dave, in 1973, Linda, in 1978 and Roy, in 1980. Jan worked as a barmaid at the Woolpack pub. She was devastated by the deaths of two of her children: Dave in a fire at Home Farm during Christmas 1996 and Linda in a car crash in October 1997 and this put strain on Ned and Jan's marriage and the couple separated. Jan left the village in 1998 for a fresh start to live with her sister, June.
