Ramblings - Series 23 - 4. Toyah Willcox

Actress and singer Toyah Willcox, who has had problems with her joints, including a hip replacement, takes Clare Balding for a walk in rural Worcestershire.

Actress and singer, Toyah Willcox, takes Clare Balding for a walk in rural Worcestershire.

The theme for this series of Ramblings is 'self-improvement' and for Toyah - who has always had problems with her joints, including a recent hip replacement - walking is the perfect exercise. She says it helps her keep her weight down and remain active.

Clare met Toyah at Croome Landscape Park, a National Trust Property famous for its stunning grounds designed by Capability Brown. Unfortunately Toyah was injured - 97 pantomime performances over Christmas had taken their toll - but, crutch in hand, the ramble went ahead.

By the end of the walk, during which Toyah discussed her serendipitous route into show business and forthcoming performance in a 'bawdy' show called Hormonal Housewives, she actually felt better. Proof, she said, that walking is one of the best ways to remain healthy.
