Fenella Fielding

Eddie Mair | 13:36 UK time, Friday, 24 August 2007

has just been into our office. She is, of course, fantastic.

Way back when, she was kind enough to record some idents for a programme I was doing in Scotland. Later, she helped us out with some stuff before I was fired from Broadcasting House. She will be on BH with Paddy this weekend and a few moments ago I met her for the first time.

She is, of course, fantastic.


...and she might pop up on PM tonight...

    Never heard of her, I just had to ask Google

    "...an English actress popular in the 1950s and 1960s"

    ah. That explains it then

    The star of Carry On Screaming by a long way. And with a voice to match the name.

    You'll be having Felicity Kendall round next...

    It's funny but now I'm starting to see resemblance between Eddie and Oddjob... Maybe she mistook you for him? Did she whisper the name in your ear Eddie? 'H-e-l-l-o Oddjob' Your more the 'news monster' Eddie... in the nicest possible way of course! By the way did I get moderated earlier with my reference to the Deadwood Stage lyric? I think thats why so many email profanity filters picked up the 'gang' reference!

    @jonnie (6) I know the carry on films, I've seen a few of them (a long time a go). But I didn't recognise the lady in the photo from them and the name didn't mean anything to me.

    The PM blog is always an education ;¬)

    Do you know, I know the name, but didn't know who she was. Think I had her confused with Fiona Fullerton in my head -- especially with Carl's references to Bond films above. I missed hearing her on the programe -- was she fantastic?

    Strangely, ‘Fenella Fudge’ is apparently also a real name.

    Fenella Fielding is an incredible actress. She has appeared in so many different roles and is incredibly sexy. Is there anyone who can tell me how I can contact her or her agent please?
