Chirpy Cockney hostess Monica Rose returned from Hughie’s previous game show, Double Your Money. Sick of being thought of as a mindless TV hostess, Monica ploughed her savings into a play in a theatre in Morecambe when the TV show ended – but lost it when the show went bust.
By 1980 she was in hospital suffering from nervous exhaustion. She managed to find a nice husband and become a born-again Christian but sadly had to have a hysterectomy and was unable to have children.
