She was born in Doncaster, West Riding of Yorkshire.[citation needed] Her career bore a lower profile than her husband's, though she presented the 1970s magazine programme Good Afternoon, produced by Thames Television. Amongst other TV work, she also frequently appeared as a panelist on Through the Keyhole.
