Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - FEATURE -

Vet­eran ac­tress, Dame June Whit­field passed away peace­fully aged 93 and trib­utes have been pour­ing in from stars of both the small and big screen.

She had an ex­tra­or­di­nary ca­reer in Bri­tish com­edy, stretch­ing from Han­cock’s

Half Hour, Terry and June but best re­mem­bered for play­ing Ed­die’s mum in Ab­so­lutely Fab­u­lous.

Her ca­reer be­gan back in 1953 in the com­edy Take It From Here and she also ap­peared in a num­ber of Carry On films and the long run­ning sit­com Last of the Sum­mer Wine.

In her last in­ter­view, recorded less than two months ago for ra­dio she said that she didn’t like watch­ing tele­vi­sion any­more as there was “too much sex and swear­ing” and it was all too PC now – some­thing that many will re­late to and agree with!
