  • Dame June Whitfield, star of Absolutely Fabulous, dies aged 93

    Dame June Whitfield - celebrated for her comic roles in BBC sitcom Terry and June and cult favourite Absolutely Fabulous - has died aged 93.


    The London-born actress was a regular fixture on TV and radio for six decades, starring in Carry On films, Hancock's Half Hour, and even Friends.

    At 89, she appeared in EastEnders as Sister Ruth, a nun with a secret about Kat Moon. At 92, she was made a dame.

    Never knew she was in Eastenders recently as I don't watch it, but for me she will always be June from Terry and June.


    RIP June.

  • Clive Swift: Keeping Up Appearances star dies at 82

    Actor Clive Swift, known to millions as Hyacinth Bucket's hen-pecked husband Richard in BBC One's 90s sitcom Keeping Up Appearances, has died aged 82.

    Swift, who spent 10 years at the RSC before breaking into television, also acted in such series as Peak Practice, Born and Bred and The Old Guys.

    He spent six years playing Richard opposite Dame Patricia Routledge.

    What a shame, I thought he was great in Keeping Up Apperances, one of the last great comedies on tv.


    RIP.

  • I think versatile is a very good description for him Heero. He's pretty much done everything and done some terrific films.
