Her TV break came a few years later when she played Rita, the married daughter of Alf Garnett in the classic BBC sitcom Til Death Us Do Part, and later revived the character in In Sickness And In Health.

She is perhaps most fondly known for playing Aunt Sally in Worzel Gummidge, which ran for four series in the UK from 1979 to 1981.
