    Bella Emberg

    British comedy actress Bella Emberg – best known for her role in The Russ Abbot Show – has died, aged 80.

    One of her most memorable characters was Blunder Woman, the comic sidekick of the hapless superhero, Cooperman.

    Emberg also appeared on The Benny Hill Show, Z Cars, and Doctor Who.

    Her agent said she would be “greatly missed”, while friend and pianist Bobby Crush described her as a “truly gentle soul”.

    The “funniest fairy”, comedy actor Paul Chuckle said.

    Emberg had just finished filming a new Sky One comedy, In the Long Run, created by Idris Elba and due to be released later this year.
