After working for several years as a TV casting assistant, she trained at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art from 1996-98 and moved into acting.
Wicks joined the regular cast of Emmerdale in November 2010 on a six month contract as Ella Hart, the ex-wife of Declan Macey. The character of Ella Hart gave Wicks the chance to be more provocative and flirtatious than many of her previous screen credits allowed. In June 2011 the short term contract was not extended and Wicks's character was written out of the programme when Stuart Blackburn took helm as producer. However, the door has been left open for the character's possible return.
