Candice Marie Stowe was Sarah Louise Platt's smoking schoolfriend. Candice started working for Audrey Roberts as a trainee stylist and moved into the salon flat after her mother's boyfriend started to make unwanted advances. Her mother didn't believe her and Audrey took her in.
Candice dated both Todd and Jason Grimshaw. She slept with Jason which caused her and Todd to break up. She dated Jason on and off over several years, in between, she always seemed to date the wrong men. She had a disastrously short fling with Nick Tilsley who dumped her for Maria Sutherland. She had an even shorter fling with married shampoo salesman Tim Marsden. She dated footballer Warren Baldwin, having dreams of celebrity in her eyes but it ended badly just before Warren moved to Spain. Luck was with Candice though, when, at Les and Cilla Battersby-Brown's wedding, she was asked to fix the hair of several members of Status Quo who played at the reception. They were so impressed that they offered her a job as tour stylist and she left Weatherfield in November 2005.
