TV career

Tamaddon played Delilah Dingle in soap opera Emmerdale from 2005 to 2007. Her first episode was aired on 15 July 2005.

Tamaddon was written out of Emmerdale in the summer of 2007 when series producer, Kathleen Beedles decided not to renew her contract but promised not to kill off the character of Delilah Dingle – leaving the door open for a possible return at some point in the future. Tamaddon has also appeared in The Royal, Where The Heart Is, Ghosthunting with the Dingles, as Lulu on Celebrity Stars in Their Eyes, Loose Women and This Morning.

In March 2007, Tamaddon appeared on Soapstar Superchef. She and her team-mate Mathew Bose, who co-stars with her as Paul Lambert, in Emmerdale, were crowned winners of the show on 13 April. She has also played the role of a nurse in The Royal Today.

Tamaddon appeared on week 18 of the BBC children's television show, Hider in the House on 4 May 2008, which was filmed at a family household in Wortley, West Yorkshire. She was busted on challenge seven but said "Personally I think I have been one of the best hiders ever and it's been really good fun."

Tamaddon appeared in Channel 4's Shameless as Calista, a lesbian who has a one-night stand with Karen Maguire. She also appeared in Waterloo Road as Zoe.

Tamaddon was crowned champion of the fifth series of Dancing on Ice, where she skated with professional skater and childhood friend Daniel Whiston. Competing over 12 weeks in front of 10 million viewers, including their Jai Ho routine, she reached the final against Hollyoaks actor Kieron Richardson who came third, and Gary Lucy with whom she went head-to head in the Bolero. Tamaddon won the trophy with over 80% of the public vote and went on tour with Torvill and Dean.

On 25 September 2010, Tamaddon appeared on an episode of All Star Family Fortunes.

In October 2013, it was announced that Tamaddon would be joining Coronation Street as Andrea Beckett, a friend of Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) and rival of Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh). She made her first appearance on 23 December 2013. Tamaddon and her character exited the soap opera in September 2015 alongside co-star Craig Charles who played Andrea's boyfriend Lloyd Mullaney.
