Image for The Many Faces of June WhitfieldNot currently available on BBC iPlayer

Duration: 1 hour

June Whitfield's career has spanned almost 60 years, and she has worked alongside such greats as Arthur Askey, Tony Hancock, Frankie Howerd, Ronnie Barker, Benny Hill, Bob Monkhouse, Terry Scott and Jennifer Saunders.

In this film, June tells her own story, from her early days in the West End working with Noel Coward to her ill-fated Broadway debut, and with the help of rarely seen archive, her fifty plus years of impeccable comedy performances on radio and TV.

June reveals that a lack of confidence about her looks caused her to play it for laughs. She also offers insights into her onscreen relationship with Terry Scott and the secret behind her continuing success.
