Daisy Head stars in episode five of the series called 24/7. Most of the action takes place inside a diner, where the character John Dee torments a group of six people, making them tell each other uncomfortable truths as well as fighting and torturing them. None of them are allowed to leave the diner.

Judy Talbot is a friend of Bette, a waitress, and is the girlfriend of a woman called Donna. However, Bette begins to fall for her after failing to get a date with Marsh.

No one survives this horrific situation, with Talbot dying alongside the other five people who were trapped inside.
