Ann was a typical Yorkshire girl of her age – the mid-late 1950s – who loved horse-riding and outdoor games. She was flirtatious, vivacious and curvaceous, with loooong legs. She was a regular in pantomimes (for our foreign readers – always funny and often outrageous Christmas shows for adults and children alike that always have a star of entertainment heading the cast. The children love the lights and costumes and music, the adults love the innuendo and double entendres) but wanted to make the break into musicals. Which may explain why she moved south to Romford in Essex.
The legs were a big advantage, as were the sparkling blue eyes. Like many hopefuls starting down that path, Ann got her face known through modelling – nothing sleazy, just early ToCo sort of stuff.
It’s a great shame we didn’t see more of her – especially because she did at least two shoots wearing a black girdle, with her knickers on top – frustratingly with a shirt that hid most of the glories from our bulging eyes. That is how things were in those days, and all the retro sites today featuring girdles get it wrong – they get the girl to put the knickers on first and then the girdle. Some would wish to see the return of capital punishment for such a heinous crime.
