Toyah on TV: The Nation’s Favourite 80s Number One

July 24th, 2015

The Nation’s Favourite 80s Number One: ITV/STV: Saturday 25th July: 9pm
The popular series turns its neon spotlight onto the 1980s – a defining decade in pop where the hits were big and the hair even bigger. Featuring interviews with 80s icons including Spandau Ballet, Bonnie Tyler, Madness, Dexys Midnight Runners, The Communards and Jason Donovan, this countdown celebrates 20 of the greatest musical moments from an era when British pop stars ruled the world. Narrated by Zoe Ball, the show tells the stories behind a hit factory of chart classics that have truly stood the test of time – from Don’t You Want Me to Total Eclipse of the Heart, Tainted Love to Billie Jean and Don’t Leave Me This Way to Come On Eileen. We take a look at the way 80s fashions took things to the extreme, and find out how the MTV explosion changed the face of music forever. Expect a colourful megamix of new romantics, Hi-NRG classics and synth pop smash hits as we have the results of an exclusive ITV poll revealing which 80s number one Britain loves the most.

NB: I can’t say for sure whether Toyah contributes to this programme. I am assuming she does due to being mentioned in “The National” article – see below.

Toyah @ Christmas: Cluedo (1990) (14 Days To Go)

December 11th, 2014

christmas14fThe first Christmas of the 1990’s saw Toyah play Miss Scarlet in a special festive edition, “Christmas Past, Christmas Present”, of ITV’s Cluedo.

You are invited to a murder: Arlington Grange – home of wealthy widow Elizabeth Peacock; society hostess and patron of the arts. A woman with a reputation she would rather forget.

Colonel Mustard: Secret lover of Mrs. Peacock. A dashing military hero who’s glitering career hides a tarnished past. The Reverand Green: Pastor of the parish who’s means of raising money are not heaven sent. Though a man of the cloth, he has feet of clay. Professor Plum: Nuclear physiscist and government advisor. But would his research methods stand the scrutiny of a microscope. Miss Scarlett: vivacious step-daughter of Mrs. Peacock; who’s lust for the high life will let nothing or no-one stand in her way. And Mrs White: for the past 15 years, friend and housekeeper to Mrs. Peacock. But what what dark secret did she bring to Arlington Grange?

Six people, all with murder on their minds.


Here are the thoughts of a Cluedo fan: “The show producers must have realised that they needed strong characters by now, as the casting of vivacious Toyah Willcox showed.

Toyah was great in the part, with all of the men drooling over her; yet still being a complete b*tch to everyone – especially her step-mother. Like others in the Christmas Special, she was made to look very similar to her card equivalent – especially her hair style.

Toyah is best known for being an 80’s rock singer (“It’s A Mystery” and more); but she also has a very strong acting career behind her. Major parts for her have been as Miranda in “The Tempest”, but she has narrated a couple of children’s television series (e.g. “The Teletubbies”) and has made many guest appearances in shows as herself.”

August 26th, 2014

Who’s Doing The Dishes: ITV: Wednesday 10th September: 4pm
On today’s programme, will it remain a mystery that Toyah Willcox is their celebrity host when she throws a dinner party for four strangers? Join Brian McFadden to find out!

ITV Press Centre: Who’s Doing The Dishes?

August 26th, 2014
wdtd14aWho’s Doing The Dishes? is a brand new daytime series for ITV presented by Brian McFadden featuring a host of celebrity faces all trying their hand at cooking…or cleaning as the case may be.

Each week, the programme follows four guests as they attend five dinner parties secretly hosted by different mystery celebrities in their own homes. Celebrity cooks include a host of stars from the world of TV, music and sport including; Louis Walsh, Claire Richards, Amy Childs, Jo Wood, Tina Malone, Wes Brown, Dane Bowers, Alison Hammond, Toyah Willcox, Sian Lloyd, Vincent Simone, Cheryl Baker, Martin Offiah, Michelle Heaton, Gillian McKeith and Jo McElderry.

As the diners tuck in and deliver their culinary verdicts, they must try to work out who’s cooking with the help of clues, which are hidden in the food as well as around the house. The guests don’t know each other, but they must work together to try and figure out at the end of the evening who their celebrity host is. If the team can successfully guess the name of the celebrity every night they can win a pot of cash to split between them and the celebrity will be putting their marigolds on. If they don’t, they’ll be doing the dishes!
