It's Official - La Roux's Mum IS June From 'The Bill'

By Luke Lewis

Posted on 10 Mar 09


Last week we wrote (somewhat sceptically) about the rumour that La Roux was the daughter of Trudie Goodwin, aka Sergeant June Ackland from 'The Bill'.

And now, thanks to those who commented on that blog, we can reveal that - hold the front page, eh? - it really is true. The reason La Roux, real name Elly Jackson, doesn't take her mum's surname is that she took her dad's instead - Kit Jackson also being a TV actor, as revealed by IMDB, with a daughter, Elly, born in 1988.

And here's the pictorial evidence: mother and daughter together. Case closed.
