Alesha Franey was the intended in a classy bridal party who descended en masse into Audrey's salon in September 2014 for a full hair and nail makeover, the day prior to her marriage to boyfriend Trevor. Alesha's friend Jasmin Ferns loudly proclaimed that the wedding would only be taking place if the bridegroom was successfully released from Strangeways Jail, and that was dependent upon whether he bit one of the guards again.
Alesha, chewing gum throughout the process, had her nails done by Kylie Platt who was in the midst of an emotional crisis surrounding her son Max Turner being diagnosed with ADHD. She had also fallen asleep at the kitchen table in the small hours when trying to catch up with her nail business's paperwork. Kylie spilt the bottle of nail varnish and Alesha gobbily pointed asked her what she was doing. She then loudly complained that the replacement wasn't the same shade as used previously - "coloured leopard". When Kylie temporarily absconded claiming a headache, it was to the cry of, "Oy, what about me piggin' nails?!"
When leaving the salon, Alesha was gracious enough to tell Kylie that although they had got off to a dodgy start, she'd done a "bangin' job" on her nails.
