Gaynor Lucas played by Kathleen Fraser, is an old friend of Tanya, who works in Tanya's beauty salon Booty. On 24 February 2009, Gaynor appears as part of an iconic episode of EastEnders featuring only black members of the cast.
Gaynor arranges with Chelsea before they finish work to meet in The Queen Victoria for a drink. Theo Kelly uses her to get Chelsea to come to the pub so he can speak to her. This episode marks her first credited appearance and first main speaking part. Booty closes down in late 2009, so Gaynor loses her job. Gaynor works as a makeup artist for Denise Wicks wedding, to Lucas Johnson.
In February 2010 she gives out beauty treatments at Bianca's hen party. Gaynor resumes her old job when Roxy Mitchell reopens the beauty salon as Roxy's. When Roxy faces financial difficulties, Roxy sells the salon back to Tanya, and Gaynor continues working there.
Tanya sells the salon to Sadie in 2013, it reopens as Beauty, and Gaynor continues as an employee. Sadie leaves and sells the Salon, and Gaynor stops appearing round about this point as she does not have a job anymore.
