Hi there and welcome to my website containing lists of films, TV and theatre appearances.

The following information is a sort of mini-blog about a few personal matters.

I entered the world of show business at the age of 19, I auditioned for 'Wish You Were Here' an American musical about a holiday camp.

They needed singers and dancers who looked good in a bikini.

I was untrained in both singing and dancing but was chosen for my looks in a bikini!

Val Guest was at the opening night and left a note at the stage door to contact him. Resulting in being given a part in the movie he was making 'Dance Little Lady'.

That episode changed my entire life and started me off on the road to fame.

Film parts just kept coming up for me and I never stopped working. In order to accept the roles I had to obtain permission from Jack Hylton to whom I was under contract.

He insisted that I sign a further contract for 2 more future shows, I had no choice so I signed.

It was hard work, at the studio at the crack of dawn, until 6 o'clock when I was whisked away to the theatre and performing on stage till 11 o'clock or so, then home to East Ham where I still lived with my parents for a few hours sleep.

My one day off was spent at the BBC where I was playing the part on Jane in the radio series 'The Huggets'.

I was photographed constantly and became Britains No. 1 pinup.

I am still working and enjoy new challeneges and appearances
