Spotlight on Una Stubbs

Actress Una Stubbs (1937–2021) appeared in some of the best-loved shows on British TV from the 1960s well into the 2010s.

Starting out as a dancer and chorus girl, her big break came as scene-stealing Sandy in Cliff Richard's 1963 film Summer Holiday, before playing Alf Garnett’s exasperated daughter Rita in the sitcom Till Death Us Do Part.

Fondly remembered for starring roles in shows like Worzel Gummidge, The Worst Witch, EastEnders and Sherlock, she was also a regular on game shows Don't Say A Word and Give Us A Clue, and appeared in comedies including Fawlty Towers, The Catherine Tate Show and Benidorm, as well as being a regular fixture on the stages of the West End. Away from acting, Una had a passion for art.

Her paintings – including watercolour portraits of Sherlock co-stars Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch – were displayed at the Royal Academy, and in 2015 she was a natural choice to co-host BBC One’s The Big Painting Challenge.
