Sally Rogers (born 12 October 1964 in Manchester) is an English actress currently best known for her role as Detective Constable / Sergeant Jo Masters in ITV's The Bill.

Sally grew up in Manchester and trained to work as a children's nanny - until at the age of 20 when she took up acting. She then studied at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London before starting work at the Royal National Theatre.

Acting career[edit]

From 1989 to 1990, Sally starred in many very successful plays at London's Royal Court Theatre.

Rogers' television work includes the BBC's Out of Hours in the late 90s and Murphy's Law with James Nesbitt. She has also appeared in Casualty and EastEnders (1992), where she played an escort named Debbie, who was hired by Ian Beale. Additionally, she appeared as Paul Calf's former girlfriend Julie in Steve Coogan's Paul and Pauline Calf's Video Diary and as Juliet Bray in The Lakes.

In 2000, she starred as Yvonne in the cult BBC2 drama series Attachments, where she worked with David Walliams. Sally then went on to appear alongside Walliams in a number of sketches in the first three series of Little Britain.

In one of her first roles after The Bill, she appeared in Matt Lucas and David Walliams' new comedy show Come Fly with Me, which debuted on the BBC on Christmas Day 2010. She plays FlyLo check-in desk manager Helen Baker.

In 2013, Rogers starred as bitchy nurse Helen Dolan in the second series of Kay Mellor's The Syndicate.
