Well, HELLO!




Can't see Phillips going anywhere. He's still very active, considering his age.

:referee:

Who are you calling a munter? Is there a DL web-cam facility that they're not telling us about? Is she your wife/sister etc?

Better keep smiling when you say that! .....back off slowly .....then run like the blazes.

Leslie Phillips wins "trouper of the year".

Both he, and Peter O'Toole, may I add, look in good fettle.

Ah, The Sun! Dontcha just love 'em?!

"Phillips, 86 - whose catchphrases include Ding Dong" (just in case you don't know who he is).

Maybe Leslie deserves his own thread, or should these posts be moved to the "Carry On" thread (although he only appeared in 4 films and Angela Scoular in none)?
Oh, Mickey! What's EGREGIOUS?!

Bugger! She was on my subs bench. Didn't put her in the team in the end because I couldn't find any recent mention of the cancer.

"...not suicide, the coroner ruled"

The actress had married Carry On star Leslie Phillips in 1982. The actor, aged 87, was too ill to attend court
