The actress is best known for her portrayal of the character Samantha Stewart in the wartime drama Foyle’s War, starring in the ITV show from 2002 to 2010 and appearing again in 2013 and 2015.
She has also appeared in TV favourites The Bill, The Inspector Lynley Mysteries and Death In Paradise.
Earlier this year the actress was reportedly ordered to wear an electronic tag after she was caught speeding on the A3 in south-west London in August 2015.
A child in the back seat was not wearing a proper seat belt and it emerged she was already banned from driving.
Weeks married hypnotherapist Lorne Stormonth-Darling in a Buddhist ceremony in the Himalayas in 2005 and the couple have a child, Wade, who was born in 2011. They live in London.
