Very sorry to hear this - an extremely gifted writer and comedienne, lost far too young.

She was an excellent stand-up, a fine writer of comedy songs and a real all-round entertainer, sadly missed.

I loved so much of her work from the irreverently silly (Acorn Antiques and Dinner Ladies) to the more serious stuff she wrote.

One of my favorites has to be the "Let's do it" song

Yes thats the one that came to my mind when I heard she had passed. You dont get the same calibre of talent these days. Sadly its all dying off.
