Unlike most of the Street's residents, Vicky came from a wealthy family. After her parents Tim and Sandra Arden were killed in a car crash in Whitby, Vicky was placed in Alec and Bet Gilroy's care until she was eighteen, when she stood to inherit £240,000.
When she came of age, Vicky dropped out of school and enrolled in a business studies course at college and used her money to buy into Steve's T-shirt printing company, Dun 2 A T. Against Bet and Alec's wishes, she married Steve although the partnership lasted less than a year as they separated when Vicky testified against Steve in court over charges of handling stolen whiskey and perverting the course of justice.
After this, Vicky made a new life in Brighton by investing in businesses including a restaurant and a wine bar which she named "Vicky's". In 1999, she wed a man called Robert and as of 2002, according to Bet, she was happily married.
