Actress Fenella Fielding has died at the age of 90, a spokesperson for the star has said.
The actress, who enjoyed a showbusiness career spanning seven decades, suffered a stroke two weeks ago and died on Tuesday.
She appeared in two ‘Carry On’ films – ‘Carry On Regardless’ (1961) and ‘Carry On Screaming!’ (1966) – and was awarded an OBE in the 2018 Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
Known as ‘England’s first lady of the double entendre’, her stage credits include the title roles in ‘Hedda Gabler’ and ‘Colette’, and in the early 1990s she starred in the children’s television series ‘Uncle Jack’ as the villainess, The Vixen.
In a statement, a spokesperson said: “We are very sad to announce that Fenella Fielding OBE passed away this afternoon on Tuesday September 11.
“This follows a severe stroke two weeks ago. During that time, she has been very comfortable and always looked tranquil and divine. And always wearing her eyelashes!
“Miss Fielding was an incredible talent. That voice! A unique woman, much loved by family, friends and fans. She will be missed tremendously.”
