After returning to the UK in 1969 as an adult, she appeared as Victoria in Take Three Girls (1969), and then its sequel Take Three Women(1982). She also had a supporting role in the 1972 movie Ooh: You Are Awful. Her career breakthrough was as April in The Brothers (1972-76), which also featured her first husband, Colin Baker.
