Connie Stephanie Beacham ITV Drama

In this 13 part ITV drama Connie (Stephanie Beacham) used to own a chain of fashion shops but moved to Greece after losing control of her business to sister Nesta (pam Ferris). Now after eight years Connie is back and looking to reclaim what she sees as rightfully hers.

Star Stephanie Beacham was brilliant in the main role of super bitch Connie, so good in fact that it led to her scoring a prominent role on US supersoaps The Colbys and Dynasty.

As befitting it’s high profile status Connie was given a prestigious TV Times cover for the week of its premiere (25 May 1985),

Betty Davies was the fashion consultant on the series and she persuaded many big name designers, including Jean Muir and Yves St Laurent, to feature their designs on the show.
