A rose by any other name....

June was pleased have a rose named after her, and particularly enjoyed the catalogue description as ‘vigorous and superb for bedding’.

Terry & June

June played opposite Terry Scott, in various productions, for nearly two decades.  The partnership began in the TV sketch show 'Scott on...' in 1968, and continued in a variety of guises until 1987.

Fabulous Darling!

In 1992 June's career took a turn away from cozy 'Terry & June' style comedy when she was cast as Mother to Edina Monsoon in Jennifer Saunders' award winning sitcom 'Absolutely Fabulous'.  Of her costume for the show she said ‘It’s tailor-made for me, but I’m embarrassed to say I wear my own clothes. I’m a terrible hoarder so I dug out all my old M&S stuff. It was good quality but just that bit out of date – perfect for the character.’
British comedy actress who played Jennifer Saunders' mother in 'Absolutely Fabulous'
