Emmerdale: Paula Wilcox


SHE’S played dozens of TV roles in her career.
But for viewers of a certain age, Paula Wilcox will always be remembered for two characters.
The Manchester-born actress first made her mark as Beryl Battersby, alongside Richard Beckinsale, in Granada’s The Lovers.
Hard to believe that series began all of 37 years ago.
In 1974 she moved on to the role of Chrissy Plummer in Man About The House and became a major star.
But acting, like most other professions, is a long game.


Paula went on to many more TV roles in shows like The Queen’s Nose and The Smoking Room.
Now she’s about to appear in Emmerdale, as you can read in today’s MEN feature here.
Chatting to Paula earlier this week, she described her latest character – Hilary Potts – as “a rather intense perfectionist”.
She also spoke about the TV village built to film Emmerdale’s exterior scenes.
“It’s very impressive down there in the valley. They do say it’s the coldest part of England – but it is gorgeous.
“And it’s in the middle of a real farm, so it’s very authentic.”
London-based Paula mentioned that she hasn’t worked in Manchester as much as she’d have liked.
Hopefully, it won’t be too long before that’s rectified.

    In the role of Chrissie Plummer in the series “Man About The House” it is for me very strange that 123 there is a lover and pats -boom she is married with the brother (Norman)
    A very unexpected end and very quick end to a very good TV series with good humour.
    Can anyone thell me how this is possible ….it looks to me that there was a need to become as soon as possible an end to the series. (maybe with a good reason????)

    I LIVE HERE IN THE UNITED STATES. I WAS CURIOUS ABOUT THE CLOSING CREDITS OF THREE’S COMPANY WHERE IT SAYS “BASED ON MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE”. SO I DECIDED TO LOOK IT UP ON THE COMPUTOR NOT ONLY THAT I PURCHASED ALL THE EPISODES TO MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE. THE SHOW IS REALLY FUNNY AND EVEN WATCHING IT OVER AND OVER I NEVER STOP LAUGHING. FOR A FUNNY SHOW LIKE MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE, I THINK THE SHOW SHOULD HAVE RAN A COUPLE OF MORE YEARS BACK THEN. THE SHOW MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE ENDED TOO SOON FOR ME.

    What I didn’t like was Norman Eshley playing Robin’s brother then a totally different character in George and Mildred.
