Garrett featured in an episode of the BBC's popular genealogy programme, Who Do You Think You Are?, in which she explored her family's Yorkshire origins. She found out about the musicians in her family: her maternal grandfather made a living playing the piano with a small orchestra that accompanied silent films at cinemas in and around Sheffield.

During the First World War he entertained troops on the piano.

She was delighted to discover that the musical gene stretched far back and had run in her family for several generations. Garrett is a veteran of Dictionary Corner on the Channel 4 game show Countdown, and in June 2005 it was thought that she was to become one of the show's rotating guest hosts while Richard Whiteley was recovering from illness.
