Wendy Richard 1943-2009

It grieves us to report the death of noted television actress Wendy Richard, who leaves us aged 65 after a battle with breast cancer.

Known for her risque portrayal of Miss Brahms in the sitcom 'Are you being served?" and latterly as frying-pan wielding battleaxe Pauline Fowler in EastEnders.

After retiring from full-time actress, Richard sent herself up in her final years appearing as a human cannonball on advertisements for the Royal Mail.

Poor, dead W. Richard. We shall miss her dearly.

Surprisingly, no points for anyone.

A bit of admin news: Poor, nearly dead JADE GOODY goes onto the embargo list. You can't choose Jade as a potential stiff.

I remember fancying her as a young lad!

+ Sharon from Please Sir, too.
