June has played 4 Carry Ons that span almost the entire series. She appears briefly in Nurse as Leslie Phillips’ girlfriend. Her other roles are larger, in Abroad we see her as Evelyn Blunt, the frigid wife of Kenneth Connor, who loses her inhibitions, when she has a brief fling with a Spanish waiter. Her best role is as Councillor Prodworthy, the leader of the women’s lib group, who sabotages the beauty contest and explodes the event into chaos in Girls. She finishes her Carry On career with a smallish role as the Queen of Spain in Carry On Columbus. In her early career she was teamed with many top-line comedians and was familiar to radio listeners as Eth’ Dick Bentley’s whingeing girlfriend in Take It From Here. She was one of Britain’s leading exponents of marital farce with her long standing partnership with fellow Carry Oner, Terry Scott in the TV series Terry On…, and later in with Terry And June. The partnership became very intermingled and many viewers thought they were married in real life. She has done extensive radio work, appearing in numerous one-off radio plays and she appears with Roy Hudd in The News Huddlines. Other TV work she is remembered for is as the dotty mother of Edina in Absolutely Fabulous. She was awarded an OBE in 1985.
