George Edward Jackson is a fictional character in the British soap opera, Brookside, played by Cliff Howells.


George first appeared on Brookside Close in Episode 28, the same episode in which resident Gavin Taylor died. Later when Gavin's wife Petra died the Jackson family moved into No. 10.[1]


George, his wife Marie, and their twin sons Gary and Little George later moved into number 10. The Jackson family's tenure on the close was short lived as George was wrongly convicted for a Warehouse Robbery. George was incarcerated and Marie began an appeal to get him out of prison.

However, George's appeal proved fruitless and he remained in prison, forcing Marie and the boys to leave the close in 1985. Billy Corkhill then bought the house and moved in with his family.
