Prisoner taken directly to Woodridge, where Wentworth has moved after the fire. An embarrassment for Colleen Powell, as they are old friends, but they haven't seen each other for 18 years. Valerie wastes no time telling the other women a story about Colleen's sexual exploits. She had been stealing goods for her lover Tom Forbes to sell in his shop, but he visits her to tell her he's found a new "supplier" (in every sense, it is implied). Val is released in (332) and thanks Colleen for not shopping her by passing on information she'd overheard.

Valerie is played by Barbara Angell
