Claire King


Claire King began her acting career in music videos, appearing Elvis Costello's 'This Town', and Zodiac Mindwarp's 'Prime Mover'.

She moved into television with appearances in 'Alas Smith and Jones, a Robbie Coltrane Special, and 'Hale and Pace'.

She joined the cast of the ITV soap opera Emmerdale 'Emmerdale' in 1989, and became very famous in her role as the super-bitch Kim Tate, for which she won numerous awards.

When she left the show in 1999, Claire joined the cast of ITV's popular prison drama 'Bad Girls', where she played prison officer Karen Betts over five consecutive series.

King has made many television guest appearances outside of 'Emmerdale' and 'Bad Girls', including 'Down to Earth', 'Dalziel and Pascoe', 'The Afternoon Play', and 'The Royal'. She also had a regular role as Betty in the short-lived BBC 3 sitcom 'The Gemma Factor' in 2010.

She finished sixth in the 2006 series of 'Strictly Come Dancing', and in the summer of 2014, entered the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.

Her film appearances include 'Cold Light of Day', 'The Wedding Video', and 'A Reason to Leave'.

Since 2014, King has made regular appearances as Erica Holroyd in 'Coronation Street'.
