The Adorable Briscoes Lady Celebrates 30 Years In A Job That Doesn’t Feel Like Work

Lynley Ward

Tammy Wells strikes a cheery pose, deftly balancing a cake adorned with burning candles in one hand, as she celebrates one of her biggest career milestones.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since the Briscoes Lady arrived on our TV screens with her trademark effervescent personality, inviting us to open our wallets and snap up some bargains at the homeware store.

So we wouldn’t expect anything less than the iconic face of the company to be fizzing with delight, smiling broadly, as she insists it can’t possibly be three decades.

“Time passes so fast! It really feels like I’ve been doing it for 15 years. It doesn’t feel like a long time at all,” she enthuses.

The seemingly ageless frontwoman, who first hit our screens back in 1989, knows she has been extraordinarily fortunate to land a job she adores that gives her an enviable work-life balance.

Her upbeat nature and distinctive melodic voice has won the petite Cantabrian many fans, with hundreds turning out to store openings just to glimpse her or shake her hand.

Though Tammy (56) says a lot of her own bubbly personality is injected into her alter ego, the two remain separate identities.
