ends a three-year ab­sence from our screens with a heart-wrench­ing ap­pear­ance as Parkinson’s suf­ferer Louise War­ing (right) in an episode of med­i­cal drama Doc­tors. Tessa, 65, was play­ing it for laughs the last time she was on tele­vi­sion, guest- star­ring as Joanna, the love in­ter­est of Roger Lloyd-Pack’s char­ac­ter Tom in BBC1 sit­com The Old Guys in 2010. Once mar­ried to DJ Tony Black­burn, Tessa is best known for play­ing Vicky Ni­cholls, later Tripp (left), in the ITV sit­com Robin’s Nest be­tween 1977 and 1981. She also starred as Sa­man­tha Cock­er­ill in the Chan­nel 5 soap opera Fam­ily Af­fairs in the late 1990s.
