Drafted by Russell T. Davis, the three-part drama Noelle will explore the reign of ultimate power and its fall from the incomparable blessing of Noel Gordon, who died in 1985.

She was declared the “Queen of the Midlands” thanks to her iconic role as Meg Mortimer in Crossroads and was the darling of the establishment until they turned on her.

As the fiery-haired widow Meg on the long-running TV series Crossroads, Noelle has become one of Britain’s most popular characters.

Then in 1981, at the height of the show’s success and the height of its fame, it was eliminated without celebration, without warning and without explanation, and the series eventually ended two years later.

With her boss’s words “all good things must end” ringing in her ears, Noelle found herself expelled from the show that had been her life for over 18 years.

Noelle, who previously had multiple roles in theater before landing the role on Crossroads, played Meg from 1964 to 1981, later returning for a two-episode stint in 1983.

After she was excluded from the show, Noel’s ill health prevented her from accepting several roles, and she died in 1985 at the age of 66.

A love letter to a TV legend, and to the crazy soap she’s starred in, Noli will be an entertaining journey through Noel’s most turbulent years, and a sharp, emotional and heart-breaking portrait of a forgotten icon.

Helena said of the role: “Noelle Gordon was a wonderful, complex, brilliant and brave woman – I didn’t know any of her before I read Russell T Davis’ script.

“I am so pleased to help tell Nole’s long-awaited and largely forgotten story.

Russell’s screenplay is brilliant work and I hope to do with Nolly. I can’t wait to get started.
