Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Vicki Michelle Interview ‘Allo ‘Allo I’m A Celebrity Interview…..
Vicki Michelle MBE is an English actress best known for her role as Yvette Carte-Blanche in the television comedy series ‘Allo ‘Allo! – a role which she reprised in 2008 and 2009 as a cast member of a stage show based on the television series.
In 2014 Michelle flew to Australia to Star in the ITV series ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’.
Michelle has a huge personality and become a much loved British legend for her saucy antics on ‘Allo ‘Allo.
Vickie is also a very successful touring actress so Belfield went to meet her at the Swansea Grand in 2005….
Michelle was given small television roles while still at stage school, the first being in Dixon of Dock Green. She appeared in big-screen versions of popular English sitcoms The Likely Lads and George and Mildred, and played alongside her sister Ann Michelle in the British horror film Virgin Witch and with Joan Collins in Alfie Darling, the sequel to Alfie.
She also appeared regularly in the 1970s children’s BBC TV series Crackerjack. More recently, she played the role of Amanda Newman in 2010 TV film Resentment, and she was Deborah Whitton in the 2013 rom com The Callback Queen.
In the early 1980s she appeared in some high-profile advertisements for Harp Lager; the slogan was “Sally O’Brien and the way she might look at you”, and there was surprise when it was discovered that the actress playing the Irish character Sally O’Brien was English but with an Irish grandparent..
In 2007, she appeared in a Children in Need special of Hotel Babylon and, the following year, appeared on BBC’s cookery programme Celebrity MasterChef.
After spending much of 2008 on tour with the ‘Allo ‘Allo! stage show, Michelle took a break to pursue various other projects, including appearing as the Wicked Queen in a pantomime production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Hull New Theatre.
She rejoined the cast of ‘Allo ‘Allo! in March 2009, reprising her role as sexy waitress Yvette. Michelle made several appearances in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale as Patricia Foster, mother of Jonny Foster – a role which she reprised for two episodes in early 2009.
In Autumn 2014, Michelle returned to the stage in the hit play ‘Hello Norma Jeane’ at London’s Kings Head Theatre, where she took on the role of an Essex grandma who claims to be Marilyn Monroe
