In a 56-year career spanning "Take It From Here" to "Absolutely Fabulous," June Whitfield's presence in a show has always been a hallmark of quality. She writes perceptively about the great comics she has known in her long professional life, and views the changing fashions in television.
An apt title for the memoirs of one of the most popular and successful comediennes and actresses in post-war Britain. June Whitfield has never been a headliner in radio, TV or the theatre, but she has always been a professional, dependable and extremely funny supporting character actress in an amazing sequence of broadcast series and stage productions spanning over 50 years. From the unforgettable portrayal of "Eth" to Dick Bentley's "Ron" in Take It From Here to the droll, imperturbable performance as Jennifer Saunders' mum in Absolutely Fabulous, Whitfield's characterisations have been many and varied and inevitably successful. She has worked with the cream of British comedy including Arthur Askey, Tony Hancock, Jimmy Edwards, Bob Monkhouse, Ronnie Barker, Dick Emery, Julian Clary and Roy Hudd. She has also maintained an admirable personal life as wife and mother amidst the non-stop work. The book appears to mark Whitfield's 75th birthday, a major serialization has been negotiated and she will be undertaking a full-scale author tour to back what should be a high-selling title in the pre-Christmas market.
