Sally Rogers (born 12 October 1964 in Marple, Cheshire) is an English actress, best known for her role as Sgt. Jo Masters in ITV's The Bill.

Rogers trained as a children's nanny, before taking up acting at the age of 20. She studied at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London before working at the Royal National Theatre.

Acting career[edit]

From 1989 to 1990, Rogers starred in several plays at London's Royal Court Theatre.

Her 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, Rogers 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.

Between January 2005 and August 2010, Rogers played DC / Sergeant Jo Masters in The Bill. By the time the series ended she was the longest serving female currently on the series.

In one of her first roles after The Bill, Rogers 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 nurse Helen Dolan in the second series of Kay Mellor's The Syndicate.

Once again in December 2016, she made highly praised appearance in EastEnders as a parking attendant named Karen Beckworth who convinces Lee Carter (Danny-Boy Hatchard) not to commit suicide, in a two-episode stint.[1][2]

Rogers gave birth to her first child, Rafael, in February 2006 and resumed filming The Bill again in August 2006. Her character reappeared on screen on 19 December 2006.
