Matthews was born in Oldham, Lancashire. She played Jenny Bradley, the daughter of the villainous Alan Bradley (Mark Eden) in Coronation Street from 1986 to 1991, making a brief return in 1993. She found out in 2018 that fellow Corrie actress Amanda Barrie is her cousin.
In 2005 Matthews joined the cast of Emmerdale as farmer's wife Sandra Briggs, but left less than a year later. In a recent interview with Inside Soap, the show's executive producer, Kathleen Beedles, admitted casting Matthews, well-known to soap fans from Coronation Street, in what would essentially become a minor role was a mistake. She also confirmed she would like Matthews to return to the show in some capacity in the future. She returned to Coronation Street as Jenny in February 2015.
