  1. interesting – I remember Jenny and she mentions Eric Holmes – a really lovely man! I was his Secretary and I couldn’t have worked for a nicer man!!! Much remembered.

  2. I remember Jenny when she was going out with, Nick Kester, a man I really fancied! I was so jelouse. She had a beautiful long hair piece, so fashionable in those days, on a velvet band and always looked very pretty. I too remeber her in a show at the Cresent Theatre. I think it was 1971 or maybe 1972?

  3. I was the BBC Drama Club producer of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”. It was a great team effort and claimed one of the very few 5 STAR ratings from the Birmingham Mail’s theatre critic.
    The show ran twice.
    On the Thursday night of the first run there was a memorable moment when Jenny’s very brief costume, she was playing a lady of questionable repute, malfunctioned and both of her splendid lady bumps popped out during a solo dance routine. Like a real trooper she carried on until she could turn her back on the audience and reload!
    Life is made of precious moments like these wouldn’t you agree?!
