1 January 1948
She grew up in West Bromwich in Staffordshire and attended West Bromwich Technical High School. She was a supporter and season ticket holder at local football club West Bromwich Albion. After leaving school she worked for the travel agency run by her father before successfully auditioning for the Golden Shot in 1967. On the show she gave the appearance of struggling to cope with the simple arithmetic needed to calculate the contestants' scores - this was later perceived as stereotyping but in fact she admitted she found that part of the job difficult.
Her acting roles include Up the Chastity Belt (1971) and Jason King (1971). She appeared with Ivor Emmanuel in Aladdin at the Grand Theatre, Swansea in 1978 and with Frankie Howerd in Cinderella at Theatre Royal, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.
