As Judy Fin­ni­gan cel­e­brates her mile­stone birth­day, we look back through the years

Woman's Own - - HELLO & WELCOME -

Start­ing out

Af­ter be­gin­ning her ca­reer be­hind the scenes as a re­searcher in 1974, Judy was later pro­pelled onto our TV screens and soon be­came a reg­u­lar fix­ture on the box.

Ex­cit­ing times

These days, Judy shuns the spot­light, but – with the help of daugh­ter Chloe – has lost weight and en­joys life as a grandma in Corn­wall.

Star guest

She may have left pre­sent­ing be­hind, but TV fans are al­ways happy to see Judy pop up as a guest panel­list on shows in­clud­ing ITV’S Loose Women.

Love and marriage

The star fell head over heels for Richard Made­ley and the cou­ple have gone from strength to strength since mar­ry­ing in 1986. Aww!

Dou­ble act

Judy and hubby Richard be­came an on screen part­ner­ship too, and won le­gions of fans fronting This Morn­ing from 1998 to 2001.

Fam­ily life

Proud mum Judy added to her brood – twin sons Dan and Tom with first hus­band David Hen­shaw – by wel­com­ing son Jack and daugh­ter Chloe with Richard.

New chap­ter

Leav­ing pre­sent­ing be­hind, Judy launched the Richard and Judy Book Club in 2010 and has since gone on to land two best­sellers of her own.
