Nancy Roberts

Nancy was a stunning blonde model from the north of England, though there is still uncertainty as to whether she was one of the Yorkshire girls – perhaps a little too early. But there is no doubt that she was a prolific photographic model who appeared in many of the early ToCo publications and a good number of other magazines during the 1950s and ‘60s. She was often photographed by Harrison Marks and appeared in several of his magazines.

Nancy showed up in a number of TV commercials and became famous for her appearances as a hostess on TV game shows like Double your Money with Hughie Green, which ran 1955 to 1968. The two most popular hostesses were Nancy, the "girl with the wiggle" and Sabrina (real name Norma Sykes), the girl with the 41 inches of pneumatic bliss.

Nancy was one of the few to appear in every ToCo title.
