TV travel show legend Judith Chalmers regaled residents of a St Albans care home with anecdotes from her fascinating career in broadcasting last week.

Judith spoke at Fonthill House’s popular Current Affairs Club, talking about shows ranging from Children’s Hour and the original Come Dancing to Wish You Were Here and beyond.

Judith recalled working with many of the biggest names in television including Ken Dodd, Richard Dimbleby and Ted Moult – and giving Mary Berry her first break as a TV cook in the 1970s.

Fonthill managing director Nathan Tomkinson said: “It was a thrill to welcome Judith Chalmers to our Current Affairs Club. Events like this are another way that Fonthill is transforming care, creating real quality of life for residents and convalescent guests.”
