Edinburgh Fringe 2016: Amy's review in Broadway Baby for Austentatious: "Amy Cooke-Hodgson was particularly adept at making quips which formed the backbone of the comedy. Reviews for past performances: 'Impressive character work' The Stage for 'Baker's Wife'. 'Amy Cooke-Hodgson as the Queen brings humour to the stage.' The Stage. 'Noteworthy performance; Cooke-Hodgson's comedic Queen, who is funny without being too pantomime dame.' WhatsOnStage. Amy plays the Trauma Nurse in ITV's 4-part factual drama "Little Boy Blue".
