Dame June Obituary
From the 40s onwards, she was a fixture on the radio and tv, and years ago had achieved the status of beloved institution, introduced to generation after generation of comedy fans.
Her film appearances were less frequent, but she was memorable in a few of the Carry Ons (including the early Nurse, and the last, Columbus) and most recently, in the cinema outing for Absolutely Fabulous.
