Maureen was a top model in her day, a pretty London girl, with huge, alluring eyes, from Streatham (or Tooting) in the south-west of the city.
Once established in the job, she turned to TV commercials – a very lucrative sideline for actors and models then, as it is now.
Maureen wasn’t seen very often, which is a great shame. Like so many of the other girls who were only seen a handful of times, she had all it took to be a ToCo regular. After her first couple of features in the early ‘60s, she wasn’t seen again for more than a decade, showing up in BB 204 in late ’72. In a way, the reappearance is an excellent demonstration of what happened in the UK in the interim – and why ToCo had been handed its death sentence; in her final two features, she is blatantly and proudly topless, flaunting a pair of chewable nipples that could put your eyes out.
