June’s fi­nal rant against sex on telly

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

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.
