Jackie Trent was an English singer-songwriter and actress. She was best known for co-writing (with Tony Hatch) several hits for Petula Clark in the 1960s and the theme tune to the Australian soap opera Neighbours in 1985.

Her first single, “Pick Up the Pieces”, was released in 1962, but it was not until three years later that she scored her first hit with “Where Are You Now”, written by Tony Hatch and Trent. The song was featured in the popular TV series It’s Dark Outside.  “Where Are You Now” reached number one in the UK Singles Chart in May 1965, topping the chart for one week.

She fared well with her cover of “Make It Easy On Yourself” which is a popular song written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. The song was a #1 UK hit for Dionne Warwick.

Trent was more successful as a songwriter than a singer. In addition to their compositions for Petula Clark, over the years she and Hatch wrote extensively for other artists, including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Shirley Bassey.

In a recording career spanning 1962–1990, Trent issued a total of twelve albums, five compilations and 51 singles
