She first appeared on Countdown on 26 February 1992, beating Stephen McGeown 62 – 44 in the 43rd heat of Series 23. She won a further three games before losing at the hands of Fergus Sharp. Her four wins and 274 points would have been sufficient for her to return for the series 23 final rounds as #5 seed, but she was unable to attend due to illness.
In an unprecedented move, the producers allowed her to return at the end of Series 24, and play a 'play-off' game against that series's #8 seed, Maureen Grabham, for inclusion into the quarter-finals. Davies won that game 65 – 27, and the following day upset the form book by beating the octochamp Norman Christian 41 – 39. In the semi-finals, she beat Richard Onions 64 – 34, meaning the final would be contested between herself and 14-year old whizzkid Wayne Summers. In the final, Davies led by 2 points after the first conundrum, but it all went wrong for her in the second half as she only scored 13 points, allowing Summers to come from behind and win the game 67 – 47.
Davies also appeared on The Krypton Factor in 1990, and impressively won the intelligence round but was unable to progress beyond the heats stage.
