Hattie Hayridge (born Carol A Bayford 17 December 1954 in Edmonton, London[1][2][3]) is an English stand-up comedian and actress, best known for the role of the female version of Holly in Red Dwarf during the third, fourth and fifth series, along with the role of Hilly in Parallel Universe, the final episode of the second series.

After graduating from the University of Sussex, she started her working life in the Civil Service at HMSO in London, before moving into stand-up comedy. Hayridge has performed on Perry And Croft: The Sitcoms,[4] Lenny Goes To Town[5] with Lenny Henry, and Alter Ego. She has also written for two shows, Rory Bremner and Carrott-U-Like, and has made numerous guest appearances on other shows including the German-Canadian sci-fi series Lexx where she played Sub-Warden Heidi in the third episode of the fourth season called "P4X".

In 2009, she starred alongside Phill Jupitus, Marcus Brigstocke and Sanjeev Bhaskar in the UK tour of the hit American improvisation show, Totally Looped.[6]

Hayridge appeared on Robert Llewellyn's CarPool in March 2010. Hattie said that the previous year she was asked to tell a joke at US Immigration in order to prove her occupation as 'comedian', she told the official: "The reason I'm here is I want to go to Disney Land. The nice bits obviously, not the touristy bits".[7]

She was due to appear at the Comedy All Stars show on 14 June 2013 at Barton Hall, Horndean.[8]
