Well, HELLO!

 

 

 

 

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

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.

Angela Scoular

 

Leslie Phillips' actress wife, 21 years younger than him, has died aged 65. "She appeared in two Bond films - as Buttercup in Casino Royale in 1966 and as Ruby Bartlett in On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969".

 

A hit for 5 teams on the DDP.

After dropping Jose Alencar and ruling out Liz Taylor at the last minute, I can only say... woop woop!

 

EDIT: Now I'm waiting for an update to say Leslie pushed her down the stairs to get unique points ;)

"A post-mortem will be held in due course. Her death is currently being treated as unexplained and officers from Westminster are investigating." Hmmm.

Wow!!! Suicide by drinking acid.... ;)

 

Does that qualify for unnatural causes?

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)?

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

Still an accident though, so the points bonus remains...

Well, it's unnatural, but I can't see how it's not suicide. No mention of accident, unless I've missed it.

 

Coroner Dr Fiona Wilcox recorded a verdict of "killing herself while the balance of her mind was disturbed".

 

Ms Scoular's death was not suicide, the coroner ruled.

 

 

 

Whatever, a horrible way to go.

Indeed.

 

BTW, nice head scratching smily; duly nicked.

Leslie Phillips has started tweeting and was good enough to have a recent pic of himself downloaded.

 

I think the ol' chestnut phrase "noticeably frail" leaps to mind...
