Southwark-born Liz trained at the London School of Dramatic Art, and after several years in repertory theatre comedy she began appearing on TV in such series as Whack-O!, Dixon of Dock Green, The Avengers and Hancock’s Half Hour. Moving into films, her breakthrough role as Peter Sellers’ curvaceous daughter in the Boulting Brothers’ I’m All Right Jack was followed by a BAFTA nomination as Sellers’ girlfriend in Two Way Stretch, after which she was a mainstay of the comedies then being produced by British studios, including Carry On Regardless, the first of her four Carry On films.

She won critical acclaim for subsequent stage engagements including Sweeney Todd, while later TV work has included roles in Miss Marple and Minder.

Copies of Liz’s new autobiography will be available for signing.
