    Yes that must be the one Marianna as I thought I remembered her wearing a tiara. Many years ago that was.

    That must have been the ambassador's wife. I just looked at each of the Bird's Eye ads. They're all fun.

    Thanks very much for the info. I think in the one advert she wore a tiara - but I may be mistaken. I'll take a look at the link you sent. Thanks once again.

    She has been in a few Carry On's the one you are thinking of Maggie is Carry on Girls , the most popular one was probably Carry on Abroad . June did a series of adverts for Birds Eye remember them well, did two for Chicken Pie one as Ambassador's wife and one as a Vicar's Wife is a link which lists them and in each item you can click that takes you to the advert on You Tube if you want to journey down memory lane.

    So pleased for June Whitfield! Does anyone remembet her in an advert whete she was entertaining guests with what looked like a home made pie (chicken I think) but it was really a Bird"s Eye frozen pie? And remembet her in the Carry On film about the seaside beauty pagent. I can't remember the title at the moment.

    I first remember seeing June in a Carry On movie. She is very talented so a much deserved honour indeed. :18:

    Good for her. I remember first seeing her in the Absolutely Fabulous series as Edina's mom.

    Long overdue for June she has been a stalwart of British Comedy and starred in some of the great shows for decades, truly appropriate and well deserved.
    NB Does Hobbo now have to refer to her as Ma'am Mum

    Pleased to just see that June Whitfield has been made a Dame in the latest honours list!

    Billy Connolly has received a knighthood as well.

    Much deserved!:18:
