? Gillian Duxbury is a model i.e. not a comedy star.
Beautiful women feature very frequently in comedy films and comedy TV shows but they are usually there for decoration and titillation rather than for any comedic abilities they may possess.
Can beautiful women have genuine comedic talent? The answer seems to depend on their country of origin. In North America, the answer is most certainly "Yes". In Britain, however, the answer is more along the lines of "Well, a few women comedians are okay-looking but I wouldn't touch most of them with yours."
Accordingly, I have to say Gillian Duxbury, although certainly a stunner, was never a comedy star.
For me, the two most attractive comediennes in Britain are Katherine Ryan and Aisling Bea, neither of whom is British.
I have had a romantic relationship with a British actress, well known to TV audiences who has appeared in several comedy dramas, but I'm not going to publish her name in this post as she's a bit of a nutter and I don't want her coming round and stabbing me.
