Additionally, she also had a part in Mangiati Vivi (1980), again by Umberto Lenzi, in which her death scene from Ultimo Mondo Cannibale was re-used.
Outside the cannibal genre, she had a role in Blake Edwards's 1978 comedy Revenge of the Pink Panther. Me Me Lai also was co-hostess of British game shows The Golden Shot and Sale of the Century,and appeared on the 1970s Yorkshire Television programme Origami, with Robert Harbin.
