Dame June Whitfield’s funeral has been held in West Sussex, with many of her friends and co-stars in attendance.
Absolutely Fabulous actress Jennifer Saunders was among them, as was Joanna Lumley, who said the service was “touching beyond words”.
The London-born actress was a regular fixture on TV and radio for six decades, starring in Carry On films, Hancock’s Half Hour, and even Friends.
At 89, she appeared in EastEnders as Sister Ruth, a nun with a secret about Kat Moon. At 92, she was made a dame.
