5' 5"
Vicki trained at the Aida Foster Theatre School and quickly won a variety of roles in film, television and on stage but it was her portrayal of Yvette in the hit BBC series Allo Allo that gained her worldwide recognition. Vicki played Yvette for all nine series with the Allo Allo stage play taking her on national and international tours to Australia and New Zealand smashing box office records, not to mention four seasons in the West End at the Palladium, Prince of Wales and Dominion theatres. Renowned for her versatility, Vicki began her extensive acting career playing leading straight roles in Softly Softly, The Professionals, Minder and Play for Today but her wonderful gift for comedy timing soon brought her to the roles we are most familiar with. On TV she has worked with the greatest names in comedy including Les Dawson, The Two Ronnies, Ken Dodd and Kenny Everett, and has appeared in such series as Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads, Are you Being Served and Come Back Mrs Noah, her role in the latter being directly instrumental in her winning the part of Yvette in Allo Allo. She has also made guest appearances on countless chat and game shows including Noel's Houseparty, where she played the role of Noel's amorous next door neighbour for three seasons, This Morning, Generation Game, Give Us A Clue, Through The Keyhole, All Over The Shop, Today's The Day, Loose Lips, The Weakest Link, Stars Reunited, Britain's Best Sitcom, Comedy Connections and the documentary Pantoland. Added to this she is also an accomplished presenter and is frequently sought after today as a speaker at corporate functions. She also regularly hosts charity events around the country. Film credits include: - The Greek Tycoon, The Likely Lads, Alfie Darling, Sweet William, Spectre, The Last Days of Pompeii, George and Mildred, The Priest of Love, Queen Kong, The Sentinel, Four on Four and The Colour of Funny. In the year 2000, Vicki embarked on a totally new venture working with English Sinfonia. Not only did she perform with them at The Cressing Temple Festival but also narrated Edith Sitwell poetry to William Walton's Façade at the orchestra's home venue, bringing a sparkling new dimension to the work which will long be remembered. Extensive theatre work has taken her from drama to pantomime, musicals to comedy. She played opposite Dudley Moore in Play It Again Sam at the Globe Theatre - London, the leading roles of Vera in Doctor In The House, Mina in Dracula, Renee in Women Of A Certain Age, Ruth in Alan Ayckbourn's Round and Round The Garden and Table Manners, Pamela Willey in Out of Order, Sally in Bedside Manners, performed overseas, Bathsheba in the British musical version of Beauty and the Beast and the Narrator in Reflections-The Musical Journey of Diana Ross. Recent years have proved particularly momentous for Vicki in the theatre where she has performed continuously scoring a string of major successes most notably for her portrayals of Hilda Bigley in the new comedy Business Affairs by Jeremy Lloyd and John Chapman; Glenda Parry in The Tart and the Vicar's Wife, a role allowing her to rediscover her more dramatic roots; Jacqueline in Don't Dress For Dinner, a role with which Vicki has become synonymous; a gloriously, contrastingly funny and poignant portrayal of Maxine in Richard Harris' Stepping Out adding tap dancing to her repertoire; the hugely diverse roles of Lady Raeburn and Asphynxia in the 50th Anniversry revival of the musical Salad Days for Matthew Townshend and as the incorrigible Miss Hannigan in the musical Annie where her dynamic performances were received by the rapturous response of audiences and critics alike. An experienced pantomime performer, Vicki has played the title role and Genie in Aladdin, the Red Queen in Snow White, The Fairy in Jack and the Beanstalk and Mother Goose, Mrs. Darling and Hook's sister, Harrietta in Peter Pan, the Lady Cruella in Cinderella, Llandudno where she scored a major triumph with her characterization, giving a modern approach to the traditional pantomime 'baddie' while retaining all the essential elements and a particularly evil portrayal as the Wicked Fairy in Sleeping Beauty at the Broadway Theatre Peterborough. She followed this a year later with an equally enchanting portrayal of the Lilac Fairy from the same pantomime, this time for Extravaganza Productions. In recent months on stage, Vicki has returned to the role of Miss Hannigan in Annie, for Kevin Wood Productions, reprised her roles in the musical Salad Days as Lady Raeburn and Asphynxia again for Matthew Townshend Productions and appeared as Betty in the Ray Cooney farce Funny Money for Ian Dickens Productions. She has just completed a number of short theatre seasons where she played Gillian in Simon Mawdsley's Audacity and identical twins Dawn and Donna in Double Vision by Eric Chappell for Stage Further Productions and a further short run as Miss Hannigan in the musical Annie. She has also made a welcome return to television in the new and slightly controversial film drama for Channel 4 Television, All in the Game, in which she played the role of Emma, wife of troubled football club manager Frankie (Ray Winstone) and returned to the role of Yvette for a TV special entitled The Return of Allo Allo for BBC 2 screened in April of 2007. This generated a great deal of media interest, initiating further guest appearances on This Morning, Richard and Judy and Breakfast TV as well as numerous radio interviews. She has just made her debut as Patricia Foster in the popular soap Emmerdale on television.
