Helen Latham was born in 1976 in the United Kingdom. She has appeared in a number of high-profile series like EastEnders, The Bill and most recently, Footballers’ Wives and its spinoff series, Footballers’ Wives: Extra Time. She recently won in the Stars in Their Eyes Celebrity Special for her performance of Dolly Parton’s hit tune, 9 to 5. Latham met her husband, Darren Morfitt, when they attended the Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London. The two have been married since 2004. When Latham’s Footballers’ Wives character, Lucy Milligan, found out she was pregnant on the show, Latham hadn’t even known she was expecting in real life as well.
Lucy Milligan, played by Helen Latham on Footballers’ Wives, is married to Bruno Milligan. She has had to put up with a lot of Bruno’s verbal and emotional abuse in order to maintain the security offered by her husband’s lucrative career. Despite Lucy’s veneer of being the perfectly happy wife, she hides the torment of her rocky marriage and eroding self-esteem. While she has repeatedly attempted to leave her ungrateful spouse, Bruno has successfully managed to constantly dissuade her.
