Alyce Platt (born 19 December 1963) is an Australian singer and actress known for her roles in television soap operas,[1] and as a television presenter and game show hostess


Her acting roles include Amanda Morrell in Sons and Daughters from 1983 to 1985, a guest role in the short-lived serial Family and Friends in 1990, and the on-going part of Jen Handley in Neighbours in the early 1990s, as well as Sarah Wilkes in A Country Practice.

Game Show Hostess[edit]

From 1986 to 1991, Platt was the co-host of the then top-rated quiz show Sale of the Century, a job that probably brought her her widest audiences and recognition. She has since returned to this role for one special episode of Temptation on 14 March 2007, during the show's Battle of the Network Shows series, in which Temptation's hosts Ed Phillips and Livinia Nixon were contestants themselves. Most recently she is seen alongside former Sale co-host Tony Barber on TV1's Cash Trivia Challenge.


She launched her debut album Beautiful Death on 4 April 2004 at the Corner Hotel.

Television Roles[edit]

She has a recurring role on City Homicide from August 2007.

She had a lead role in the children's television series The Elephant Princess as Anita Wilson.[2]

On 9 August 2012, it was announced Platt had re-joined Neighbours as a different character.[3]
