Lillian Tyler is a local busy-body. She had an affair with her friend Carol Fisher's husband in the 1970s. Her husband was accidentally shot dead by Carl Gallagher. As of series 5, Lillian has appeared much more in the show, even becoming narrator for episode 7. Lillian also runs a brothel at her home, a means to making easy money. Frank often makes reference to her resemblance to Mel B's caricature from the TV series Bo Selecta! In series 6 it is revealed she has a son called Rodney - proving that her 'penis' that was shown at the end of series 6 was indeed just Frank's imagination.
