In addition to her lacklustre career, her personal life was also turbulent. She was briefly married to the actor Kenneth Ives and then again to another actor, Andrew Knox, in a union that lasted merely months. On 16th November 1980, police were called to Imogen’s home in Wimbledon by Suzanna Leigh, her friend and fellow actress with whom she had been due to go on holiday that very morning. Imogen was found dead, her plane tickets in her hand and the cause of death an overdose of Tuinals. Andrew Knox, her former husband, would eventually take his own life in a similar manner.
