Come and spend an evening with the Bad Girls and Misty Moon’s MC Linda Regan.
Bad Girls is a British television drama series that was
broadcast on ITV from 1 June 1999 until 20 December 2006. It was created
by Maureen Chadwick and Ann McManus of Shed Productions, who initiated
the idea of developing a series primarily focusing on the inmates and
staff of the fictional women’s prison, Larkhall, located in South
London. Following the success of previous series Within These Walls (1974-78) and the Australian-imported Prisoner: Cell Block H (1979-86), both of which screened on ITV, Bad Girls
was commissioned by the network and was a realistic, modern portrayal
of life in a women’s prison. The series featured a large ensemble cast,
including Vicky Alcock, Kika Mirylees and Tracey Wilkinson.
Vicky Alcock played prisoner Julie Saunders in Bad Girls. She also played Agnes Clarke in The House of Elliot (1991-94). In January 2012, Vicky was cast as Lorraine Salter, the ex-prostitute mother of Mandy Salter in EastEnders. Vicky has also starred in Birds Of A Feather (2015), Lovejoy (1992) and The Bill (1993-2008).
Kika Mirylees played Julie Johnston in Bad Girls. She played the role from the first episode, in 1999, to the final episode, in December 2006.
Kika also played Angela Snow in The Darling Buds Of May (1991-92), Flora McInnes in Strathblair (1992-93) and Doc Newton in Red Dwarf (1999).
Her guest roles include Jonathan Creek (1997), Taggart (1987), The Bill (1990), Casualty (2005), Lovejoy (1986), EastEnders (2007-08) and Not Going Out (2007).Nic Goodey
