Lorraine Wilson was a nightclub owner that Lewis Richardson befriended in 2000. Lorraine used Lewis's new club, The Loft, for her security staff to deal drugs on. Lewis began gambling in her casino, but found himself in debt with her so she loaned him money. Lewis struggled to make repayments and Lorraine offered Lewis the chance to wipe his debt by having sex with her, to which Lewis agreed, despite being in a relationship with Ruth Osborne. Lorraine blackmailed Lewis, using photographs of them together, to get Lewis to help her take her son who is living his father in Barcelona. They successfully kidnapped him but were chased all over Barcelona and forced to return him. Lorraine blamed Lewis and swore revenge.
