Romances Rob Cleaver

Jasmine Koreshi is bright, smiling and enthusiastic. She is a strong believer in doing things by the book – as she’s been taught at college – and her obsession with dotting every ‘i’ and crossing every ‘t’ aggravates some of the more laid back members of staff such as fellow English teacher Grantly. Jasmine quickly became good mates with Davina and are each other’s confidantes. However, their friendship was severely tested when Jasmine became besotted with Rob, the new PE teacher, and Davina finds herself having to give Jasmine bad news about her new love. Jasmine left Waterloo Road for pastures new after the truth about Rob came out. Essentially Jasmine has strong opinions and good intentions such as when Kim Campbell turned out to have taken Grace and she thought that someone like that shouldn't work in a school. She is good friends with Davina Shackleton and Matt Wilding who she is seen next to in the opening titles of series 3.

Jasmine left Waterloo Road at the end of series 4 after finding out the truth about Rob.
