Toyah the moll

One-Time High Priestess of Punk Toyah Willcox - who starred in the ill-fated Cabaret which closed earlier this year - bounces back to the West End stage this month playing a gambler's moll.

Her new role in the classic American comedy Three Men And A Horse sees the former pop idol fall for a jingle writer.

Toyah, a good friend of Prince Edward, is married to rock guitarist Robert Fripp.

In the early 1980s her colourful aggressive style made her the talk of the pop world and the gossip columns.

But she has since been acclaimed for her acting in Trafford Tanzi and alongside Lord Olivier in The Ebony Tower.
