Browse biogs A-Z

Faith Brown was born on 28 May 1944 in Liverpool.

She is best known for her impressions and on the back of Margaret Thatcher's becoming Prime Minister, she was commissioned to present The Faith Brown Chat Show on ITV.

The Guardian asked Faith Brown where she was when she heard that Margaret Thatcher had resigned:

"I was at the BBC and was doing a sketch at the time as Mrs Thatcher ... My heart sank when I heard the news, because I did a lot of work as Thatcher ... I was a great admirer of Thatcher, and I think she had a bit of a raw deal, to be honest ..."

As well as Margaret Thatcher, Faith Brown regularly impersonated Pam Ayres, Lena Lovich, Madonna, Bette Midler and Marilyn Monroe amongst many others.

Some of Faith Brown's other TV appearances have been unusual. She played Anne Bradley in Brookside, she got covered in maggots by Freddie Starr in An Audience with Freddie Starr, and she was the Cryon leader Flast in Doctor Who.

In I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in November 2006, Faith Brown was the third person voted off the series, following in the footsteps of Toby Anstis and Scott Henshall.
