Personal Quote:

[Speaking about Joan Sims in 2001 at the time of her death] "To me she was the last of the great Carry Ons. She was there at the beginning. Her talent was wonderful, she could do any accent, dialect, she could dance, sing, play dowdy and glam. We laughed all the time and giggled a lot. I will sorely miss her." See more »

Trivia:

Was made a dame by Queen Elizabeth II for her services to charity on 22 March 2016. Her former EastEnders (1985) co-stars Pam St. Clement and June Brown were in attendance. See more »
