Wiki Danowski arrived as a new employee of Carla Connor at Underworld and was recruited by Becky Granger to work the evening shift. It didn’t take long for Wiki's hard work to be rewarded and she was given a permanent job at the factory. As a Polish immigrant, she was paid less than other employees, and they became concerned that their pay would be affected by this. She was bullied by Joanne Jackson and Janice Battersby, but Hayley Cropper secured her equal pay from Liam Connor, when the workers went on strike after Sean Tully was fired by Liam's brother Paul. She was the only factory worker to have seen Kasia Barowicz fall and die in the factory during an illegal shift. Paul, Carla and Liam covered up Kasia's death until 8:00am the following morning, when the death would be covered by their insurance. Wiki went along with this when Carla told her that if they didn't do this, Kasia's family would receive no compensation. Wiki had a son back home in Poland, aged twenty-one, and she was working in Underworld to support him. She started her own business, selling underwear that Kelly Crabtree was interested in. She left Weatherfield and returned to Poland to look after her mother, who had contracted pneumonia.

Actress Wanda went onto maternity leave which led to her character departing. However it was later revealed the character would not be returning to the show.
