In addition to her musical achievements, Decker also has acted on both stage and screen, including a part in the film Nine Dead Gay Guys. TV appearances include Hit Me, Baby, One More Time, (in which she reached the final round, ultimately being beaten by Shakin' Stevens). Decker also appeared in the British comedy series Trigger Happy TV, in which she appeared in a "bull in a china shop" sketch (the joke being that she had previously had a hit with the song, "China in Your Hand"), and in another sketch where she accompanied Dom Joly as he pretended to be a door-to-door salesman.

Decker took part in the prime time BBC One show Just the Two of Us, which began on 2 January 2007. However, despite singing duets with Beverley Knight, Tony Christie and Natasha Hamilton, she and her singing partner Gregg Wallace were the first to be eliminated from the show after singing the Jackson Five's "Blame It on the Boogie".

Decker appeared in the video for Peter Kay and Matt Lucas's charity single "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" for Comic Relief's Red Nose Day 2007. She released the single "Just Dream" in download-only format in September 2007.

Personal life

T'Pau member Ronnie Rogers was her boyfriend at the time, and they co-wrote the majority of the band's songs.

Decker began dating restaurateur Richard Coates in 1996. They have two children, Scarlett (born 1998) and Dylan (born 2002), and married in 2006. That same year, Decker became a joint tenant of the Cherry Tree Inn at Stoke Row near Henley, which Coates had established. It closed in 2012.
