It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved client and much loved stage, screen, and radio actress Doreen Mantle, aged 97.

She was best known for her performance as Jean Warboys, the annoying friend of Victor Meldrew’s wife, in the BBC comedy series One Foot in the Grave. She also starred in BBC detective series Father Brown, as well as appearing in the ITV soap Coronation Street as Joy Fishwick.

She died peacefully at home. She is survived by her two sons, four grandchildren and one brother.
