June Whitfield in EastEnders tonight!

A quick reminder that comedy legend and Carry On star June Whitfield is making a guest appearance in EastEnders this evening. Apparently June will be playing a nun and sharing scenes with actress Jessie Wallace who plays Kat Slater.

While I am not a fan of the BBC soap, it is always good to see June on our screens and great to see her still working in her ninetieth year! There can't be many more experienced comedy actresses working in Britain today. 

EastEnders is of course no stranger to Carry On actors popping up all over the place. Barbara Windsor most famously played landlady Peggy Mitchell for 16 years. Wendy Richard, who appeared in Carry On Matron and Carry On Girls went on to star as Pauline Fowler for over twenty years. Actors Dilys Laye and Ray Brooks have also appeared in the London-based soap opera while Sid James' co-star from Bless This House, Diana Coupland, had a guest role some years back.

So while I'm not an avid viewer of the Walford saga, I might just tune in tonight to see the lovely June.

EastEnders goes out this evening at 8pm on BBC1.
