Vicki Michelle (born 14 December 1950 in Chigwell, Essex) is an English actress best known for her role as Yvette Carte-Blanche in the television comedy series ‘Allo ‘Allo! – a role in which she is still active with the touring cast of the stage show based on the television series.
After spending much of 2008 on tour with the ‘Allo ‘Allo! stage show, Michelle took a break to pursue various other projects, including appearing as the Wicked Queen in a pantomime production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which runs until 11 January 2009 at the Hull New Theatre. She will, however, rejoin the cast of ‘Allo ‘Allo! in March 2009, reprising her role as sexy waitress Yvette. Michelle made several appearances in the British soap opera Emmerdale as Patricia Foster, mother of Jonny Foster – a role which she is set to reprise early in 2009. She is part of the cast of the long-running touring play Seven Deadly Sins Four Deadly Sinners produced by Marc Sinden.
Michelle’s film roles have included that of Glenys in the 1976 comedy film The Likely Lads, as well as playing an English hitchhiker in Alfie Darling. She also appeared in the infamous adverts for Harp Lager in the early 1980s. The slogan was “Sally O’Brien and the way she might look at you.” It caused uproar when it was discovered that the actress playing Sally O’Brien was English. In 2007, she appeared in a Children In Need special of Hotel Babylon and, the following year, appeared on BBC’s cookery programme Celebrity Masterchef.
