Former co-star Russ Abbot led tributes to the comedy actress Bella Emberg
13 January, 2018, 19:14
BRITISH comedy star Bella Emberg, who was best known for her role as Blunderwoman, has died at the age of 80.
As well as The Russ Abbot Show, Emberg also starred in Doctor Who, The Benny Hill Show and Z Cars, while she also made an appearance in the Mel Brooks film History of the World, Part I in 1981. She was my leading lady throughout most of my career.
In an interview with the Daily Mirror previous year, Emberg insisted the Blunder Woman character had been a positive thing, despite struggling to find work when the show finished in 1996.
The comedian joined former co-star Les Dennis and personalities including Paul Chuckle and Cheryl Fergison to pay tribute to the veteran actress.
Her agent confirmed her to death to the BBC tonight, adding that she would be "greatly missed".
Abbot said she was 'a genuinely amusing woman, but most of all a woman of vast warmth and generosity.
The actress also had roles in Doctor Who, The Benny Hill Show and Pompidou, in a career spanning six decades.
But it was her performance as Blunderwoman, the comic sidekick of Abbot's Cooperman in the 1980s, which shot her to fame. I prefer to think of her as Wonderwoman to Blunderwoman.
Emberg had just finished filming a Sky One comedy called In the Long Run, which is the brainchild of the actor Idris Elba.
Les Dennis, who appeared on The Russ Abbot Show, shared a photo of him and Emberg on Twitter. A amusing, lovely friend.
Charlie Hanson, one of the producers on the series, said Emberg was a "lovely and amusing woman" and a "brilliant" actress.
