June’s final rant against sex on telly
DAME June Whitfield, who died over Christmas aged 93, used her final interview to criticise modern TV – saying there’s “too much sex and swearing”.
The actress ( above), best known for roles in Absolutely Fabulous and Terry and June, made the comments in an interview on BBC Radio Sussex just days before her death on December 28.
She said: “I never know whether telly programmes put on what people want or what they think they should want.
“Everything, every channel, it’s either some sex scene or a killing of some kind.
“And where’s the humour gone? You can’t really get a good laugh from television.”
June also admitted that while she liked some modern comics, others “spend the whole time swearing”, and “finish with an obscene word and get off”. A SLOTH’S top speed is six centimetres a second.
