She’s been with me all my life. Before we had TV, our family would listen regularly to her character Eth’s “Oh Ron” in The Glums. What a laugh!

From then on she was always in demand until the age of 89. An Ab-Fabulous British treasure.

Arriving at her house in Wimbledon one day in a limousine with her then famous co-star Terry, who had earlier unkindly (perhaps comically) criticised her for drinking tea in a mug, imagine my delight when that lovely, kind and gracious lady invited us in for a cuppa.

Dame June Whitfield, always Carrying On.
