Charlie's Angels: Where Are They Now?

Good morning Charlie!

This week marked the 40th anniversary of the appearance of that beautifully blow-dried, perfectly made-up, stylishly dressed trio of female detectives on our screens.

Led by the ever-absent Charlie and loyal assistant Bosley, the Angels kicked, fought and out-smarted a serious number of villains between 1976 and 1981 - and all in high heels, of course.

And even if the girls were occasionally replaced - remember when Farah Fawcett's character Jill left to pursue a career as a racing driver on the European Grand Prix circuit, or when Sabrina gave it all up to get married and start a family? - the series never lost its magic. 

Also, fun fact, the reason we never actually saw Charlie's face was because John Forsythe, whose dulcet tones voiced the investigators' boss, told Aaron Spelling that he would have to pay him a hefty sum to appear on screen.

So where are they now? Click through the gallery above to find out where our favourite crime-fighters ended up.
