EASTENDERS' legend June Brown on her Bafta nod
“The cast have been lovely. Everyone is almost more pleased than I am cause I’m a grumpy old thing really.”

June has been around showbusiness for too long to get carried away with her nomination for Best TV Actress.

I have got quite a few awards already in the garage, one of them nearly flattened me. It fell off the cupboard and made a quarter-of-an-inch dent in the floor. So we are quite wary of awards, because they are heavy things.”

  1. Congratulations to June Brown... Finally. :) Anyway, about the whole DTV switch thing... 3.6 million homes still on analog is still too much. There's a whole bunch of unused coupons for the converter boxes. Does that mean the people aren't using what's being given to them?
