Lesley is best known for playing Dorien Green, the neighbour from hell, in the sitcom Birds of a Feather, alongside Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson.
Having recorded over 100 episodes, Dorien Green became a national intuition, watched at its height by 23 million people. Alongside her original co-stars, Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson, ‘The Birds’ have been back on our screens since 2013.
Lesley most recently starred as Frau Blücher in Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein at the Garrick Theatre. A knockout performance, which earned Lesley an Olivier Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical.
She has a wealth of theatrical experience to her credit, in virtually all aspects of the business, having trained at LAMDA before carving out a career for herself on stage. Her acting roles have covered a wide range from serious drama, to musicals and revue, in both the West End and major theatres all over Britain. Her film and television credits include performances for all the major television channels in the UK and film work with major directors including Franco Zeffirelli.
Her roles in theatre have been varied from appearing in the Sir Peter Hall’s production of Home, Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Piaf by Pam Gems, Frosine in The Miser with Ian Richardson, Dooniasha in The Cherry Orchard, to Hortense in The Boyfriend amongst others. She played Miss Hannigan in Annie at the Victoria Palace and She played Mrs Meers in Thoroughly Modern Millie. She toured with Edward Hardwicke in Office Suite by Alan Bennett, and produced and starred in Singular Women, a one-woman show written by Stewart Permutt, at The Kings Head. It was in Exclusive Yarns written by Gary Lyons and Stewart Permutt, at the Comedy Theatre that Lesley was seen by Laurence Marks, which led to Birds of a Feather.
More recently, Lesley’s theatre credits have included the 2016 tour of Annie, in which she reprised the role of Miss Hannigan; West End run of The Vagina Monologues, and huge tours of Calendar Girls inter-mixed with poignant performances in straight dramas like A Visit from Mrs Protheroe opposite Edward Hardwicke and the wonderful Flora Humble in the award winning play Humble Boy.
To families in every corner of Britain, Lesley Joseph is also well known for her work in pantomimes. From Belfast to Bradford, Cardiff to Wimbledon, there aren’t many people who haven’t seen her Wicked Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, her Fairy in Dick Whittington or her Fairy Godmother in Cinderella. She takes pantomime very seriously and has played all the major theatres. She toured with John Nettles for eight years in Dick Whittington, and it was at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton that Michael Aspel presented her with the big red book for This Is Your Life.
On television, she played Rachel Culgrin in the ITV soap, Night and Day for nearly two years. Other TV appearances include Rumble with Brian Glover, Easy Money, Spywatch, Minder, Roots, The Knowledge and many others. She played Green Beryl in the Channel 5 series, The Secret of Eel Island and guest starred as Erica in the BBC’s The Slammer.
Lesley has appeared in Scores of Light entertainment shows. She had a regular spot on GMTV for three years, playing a glamour correspondent, as well as presenting on Wish You Were Here. She appeared as Ethel Merman in Stars in their Eyes, as well as countless quiz shows, game shows and talk shows both as a guest and a presenter on The Underdog Show and Celebrity Come Dine With Me. Lesley has also hosted a highly successful weekly talk show on BBC London and regularly appears on This Morning and was honoured to have a rose named after her at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Lesley also donned her dancing shoes and sequinned dresses as one of the contestants in 2016s Strictly Come Dancing with dance partner Anton du Beke. Lesley joined the hit Strictly Come Dancing National Arena Tour, culminating at Wembley Stadium and the 02 Arena.
