Following the recent disheartening news that Irish consumer giant Avoca would not be opening a retail outlet in Lucan, it has been rumored that another illustrious name may be interested in investing in the site. Martine McCutcheon, the actress who played the role of Tiffany Mitchell on BBC soap opera ‘Eastenders’, is said to be expanding her agricultural machinery empire, and a facility close to Dublin City may be in her plans. McCutcheon played the role of Tiffany, the so-called ‘tart with the heart’ on Eastenders for almost 30 years, leaving in 2003, shortly before her 54th birthday. In the series, her character was killed off when she was thrown out of a hot-air balloon by boxing promoter Dot Cotton. A popular addition to the show, she had several traumatic storylines, such as when she gave birth to septuplets, several of whom weren’t hers, marrying ‘bad boy’ Grant Mitchell, and her ongoing feud with Rita Fairclough from ‘Coronation Street’. She’s had several high-profile roles since her exit, including a part in the 2007 blockbuster Christmas flick, ‘Love Actually’, where she took on the role of the assistant to the British Prime Minister, played memorably by Kevin Costner, whom she said was; ‘A right laugh, innit’. Mr. Costner, however, will not be investing in the project, as he seemingly doesn’t know a great deal about farm machinery. If the plans go ahead, it is expected to be McCutcheon’s 48th such plant, with all the others being based in the Tullamore area, ‘I love Tullamore, innit, reminds me of Blackpool’, she said.
