Lily Wilson was the grandmother of Rae Wilson. She was mugged by Barry Newton when he was on the run. Newt returned her handbag to her and informed her that Rae was dead. However, this proved false when Rae appeared. Later, Rae agreed to relocate with her boyfriend Newt, his mother and baby brother to Scotland. However Lily suffered a stroke on Rae's 18th birthday despite Rae from surviving from what she believed was a strange family curse. Rae decided not to go with him and his family so she decided to stay for a while longer to look after Lily instead. Lily didn't return for Rae's funeral when Rae was murdered by Silas Blissett in September 2011.
