Linda Robson - expelled


Linda Robson - expelled

This year, Linda celebrates her 39th year in show business, having started at the tender age of nine. During this time, she has acted in numerous TV programmes and stage shows, but is perhaps best known for her role as Tracey in the hit BBC sitcom Birds of a Feather, which made her a household name.

Her early career saw her in the popular Shine On Harvey Moon, where she played opposite Nigel Planer. Since then she has appeared in, among others, The Bill and Crossroads plus many reality TV and game shows, including I'm Famous and Frightened!, Celebrity Blind Man's Bluff, Celebrities Under Pressure and The Weakest Link.

With her good friend and Birds of a Feather co-star, Pauline Quirke, Linda presented the hugely successful Jobs for the Girls, which challenged her to tackle a host of unlikely jobs. These included becoming a national newspaper photographer, showing a prize-winning dog at Crufts and organising a charity party for the Duchess of York.

One of Linda’s most poignant challenges on Jobs for the Girls was to be an opera singer, when she was taught by none other than Fame Academy judge Lesley Garrett.

Apart from that, she performed a duet with Pauline Quirke on The Royal Variety Show in the 90s singing I Will Survive. She lists her ‘famous singing friends’ as Lesley Garrett (of course) and the boys from Blue.

Linda is the third celebrity to have been expelled.
