Storylines[]

Joy arrives in Walford with her husband Cedric Lucas, who is visiting his old friend and bandmate in The Five Hectors, Patrick Trueman. They get lost and ask Denise Fox in the Post Office for directions to Patrick's house. Joy compliments Patrick's wife Yolande on her cooking, and helps her with the washing up. After Cedric reveals to Patrick and Jim Branning that he is dying, Joy and Cedric leave to visit more friends in London, and then plan to return to their home in Trinidad.

Joy returns in October 2006 to tell Patrick and Yolande that Cedric has died. She attends his funeral and wake, with Patrick, Yolande, and Cedric's other surviving bandmate, Aubrey Valentine. Denise Fox has revealed that her father was in a band called The Five Hectors, and Patrick tells Joy and Aubrey that her father is either himself, Cedric, Aubrey, or one of the two other deceased band members. Joy later returns to Trinidad.
