Ruth's appearance on KindaSound Radio, on the Kinda Happy Show with Kath Temple:

Gorgeous Ruth Madoc, almost 78 years old, is an extraordinary testimony to aging with vitality and gusto!

RADA-trained Ruth is best known for her role in Hi-de-Hi, for which she received a BAFTA award nomination, and for her role in Little Britain. Just last year she was touring in Gary Barlow’s tour of the musical Calendar Girls. She has worked in The Black & White Minstrel Show, Fiddler On The Roof, Under Milk Wood, The Prince & The Pauper, and has appeared in the stage production of Steel Magnolias. Eamonn Andrews did This Is Your Life with Ruth in 1984.

Ruth was married for 20 years to actor Philip Madoc, and they had two children together, Rhys and Lowri. She married John Jackson in 1982. John and Ruth live in Wales and make regular visits to Gibraltar where her daughter Lowri lives.
