June Brown has been on our screens for over twenty years now as the loveable busybody Dot Cotton in the BBC soap Eastenders.

We love her fag-smoking, bible-bashing ways; her distinctive auburn do with the two curls and not forgetting the tabard she dons for work at the launderette. No spring clean is complete without a tabard. June Brown is up for a TV BAFTA award this weekend for her portrayal of Dot Cotton, so we thought it was high time we gave her the CQ thumbs up!
