Vicki Michelle MBE is an English actress best known for her role as Yvette Carte-Blanche in the television comedy series 'Allo 'Allo! - a role which she has reprised in both 2008 and 2009 as a cast of the stage show based on the television series.
Her father was a fish trader and her mother an actress. She attended Knewnham Junior School in Wanstead and West Hatch Technical High School. After O-levels she stayed on at school to complete a secretarial course. Hoping to become a ballet dancer she then joined the Aida Foster stage school.
Michelle gained small television roles whilst still at stage school, the first being in Dixon of Dock Green. Her film roles have included that of Glenys in the 1976 comedy film The Likely Lads, playing an English hitchhiker in Alfie Darling; and is currently in the middle of filming the role of Amanda Newman in a new short film being made at Elstree Studios entitled Resentment. She also appeared in some high profile advertisements for Harp Lager in the early 1980s. The slogan was "Sally O'Brien and the way she might look at you." There was surprise when it was discovered that the actress playing the Irish character Sally O'Brien was English. In 2007, she appeared in a Children In Need special of Hotel Babylon and, the following year, appeared on BBC's cookery programme Celebrity MasterChef.
