Rosemarie Ford (born Rosemarie Poundford; 5 March 1962) is an English dancer, actress and television presenter.

Television career[edit]

Ford is best known for her stint as the co-host of the BBC 1 game show The Generation Game with Bruce Forsyth in the early 1990s. She later hosted Come Dancing, again for the BBC. Coincidentally, Ford's former Generation Game colleague Forsyth was a former presenter of Strictly Come Dancing, the revived celebrity version of the show.


Ford worked as a backing singer for Cliff Richard in his "Live and Guaranteed" Tour in 1988 and danced on stage during "Devil Woman". She has appeared in such stage shows as Cats (as Bombalurina and Grizabella) and TIME (as part of Captain Ebony's Retinue).

Other than Cats, she has also appeared in the shows Juke Box, Me And My Girl, Can-Can and Divorce Me, Darling.


She was a recipient of the Carl Alan Award in 1999, an industry honour voted for by dance professionals.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Ford began a long term relationship with actor Robert Lindsay after he left his previous partner Diana Weston for her[citation needed]. The couple have two children, Samuel (born 18 November 1999) and James (born 8 April 2003). The couple married on 31 December 2006.[2] The family's home is in Denham, Buckinghamshire.
