Perhaps not a star in your eyes, but she did feature in The Two Ronnies.

Ah I see....a bit before my time. I googled her and, beside her photo, it just says 'model'

I always fancied her. I wonder what she looks like now though.

No Laurel & Hardy and Cleopatra are before your time. This woman shares your time.

Knew I recognised her from somewhere. She also looks like she would have been perfect for 80s adverts. Martini, Flake, Playtex, Timotei, Denim and the like.

I once met Alexei Sayle. It was tough, face to face with this massively influential, hilarious, hugely respected cult figure. But he coped.

? Gillian Duxbury is a model i.e. not a comedy star. :S

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.

It was comedic watching her trying to park that car.
Incidentally, she was beyond gorgeous close up and smelled divine.

You might say it was just a little Lambo that had lost its way (into the parking space).

Cariad Lloyd and Rachel Parris (couldn't hope to meet two nicer comics, as are the rest of the Austentatious troupe), Stewart Lee, despite being seemingly shy, had a good chat about comedy. Best was The Chuckle Brothers last Christmas after panto, stayed and chatted for upwards of fifteen minutes, absolute legends.
