Fiona was born in West Kirby and, with a talent for dancing from 9 years old, she attended a boarding school specialising in dance, where she studied ballet, jazz modern and tap dancing.  She wanted to be a classical ballerina.  While performing in shows she met Morcambe and Wise and it was Eric Morcambe who introduced her to the entertainer Roy Castle and a year later, when Fiona and Roy married, Harry Secombe was their best man.  When she was 35 year old Fiona dropped the children of at school one day, came home and felt so low that she got down on her knees and prayed to God in desperation.  At that precise moment, a Christian lady that Fiona barely knew, telephoned because she felt that Fiona needed to talk.  Fiona became a Christian and all the anxiety and tension fell away.  Roy and Fiona used the shocking news of Roy’s lung cancer as a platform for telling the journalists and media about Jesus.  Fiona has written a number of books, including 5 anthologies of prose and poems, autobiographies and a book on coping with cancer.  She has run the London marathon twice for Oasis Trust, for which she is a patron.  In 2004 Fiona was awarded an OBE for her work with GLOBAL CARE and other charities.  Come and hear Fiona’s inspirational story at The Key.
