Liz first came to Walford for her son Owen Turner's trial. She came back later for her granddaughter Libby Fox's 18th birthday and Owen forces her to make Libby forgive him.
Liz also has a second family which is rarely mentioned on the square which include an ex-husband called "Will". Her previous father-in-law wasn't very nice to Liz, so she nicknamed him "Boot-strap Bill". Will isn't seen very often as he stayed in the Caribbean with his good friend called Jack. Liz has in the past accused Will and Jack of living in the past as they often go sailing from island to island aboard tall ships.
