Daisy , née Walton is a fictional character in the British situation comedy, Keeping Up Appearances, portrayed by actress Judy Cornwell.
Daisy is the lower-class sister of social-climbing snob Hyacinth Bucket, who lives with her apathetic slob husband, Onslow their surname is never mentioned, promiscuous sister Rose, and her senile father.
Daisy is full of life and always smiling, despite picking up her husband's bad habits of sleeping until noon and watching television all day. She persists in trying to get her apathetic husband to have sex with her (she recalls their first time was in a bus shelter on Milton Street, though Onslow disagrees - A Barbecue At Violet's), and tries to share romantic moments with him, however, her efforts always fail (see especially The Boy Friend) as Onslow prefers to drink beer and watch "racing on the telly." As a result, Daisy tends to lose herself in Mills & Boonromance novels.
Onslow and Daisy have one daughter, Stephanie, who has a daughter named Kylie (whose father is unknown even to Stephanie, who is in a polyamorous relationship), and only appears in the final episode of series one, The Christening.
Daisy's care-free, dirt-infested way of living is condemned by her elder sister Hyacinth; nevertheless, it is Hyacinth that Daisy always turns to when worried about Onslow, Rose, or her senile father who frequently causes embarrassing problems that Hyacinth has to always solve. Daisy, like Hyacinth, has to help deal with their father's constant shenanigans, such as getting engaged to a succession of different women. Often he sneaks out without anyone noticing, and Daisy must track him down. She pushes frequently reluctant Onslow in dealing with her father.
It is briefly mentioned in series four, that Daisy is a Liverpool F.C. supporter, and once went with her uncle to the games. Her support for Liverpool F.C. caused a huge problem with Onslow when they first met, because she did not reveal her allegiance until the wedding night. The football club which Onslow supports is unnamed, but since Onslow is a Scouser himself, it is presumably Everton F.C. or Tranmere Rovers.
According to the book Hyacinth Bucket's Hectic Social Calendar, Daisy's birthday is July 18th.
