Gavin & Stacey stars pay tribute to Margaret John

Margaret, 84, who passed away in hospital in Swansea in the early hours of this morning after a short illness, had a career spanning six decades.

She received a Bafta Cymru Lifetime Achievement award in 2009 and also starred in BBC Wales comedy High Hopes.

But the Welsh actress will be best remembered for her recent appearances as sex-mad spinster Doris in the BBC comedy series written by James Corden and Ruth Jones.

Father-to-be James Corden tweeted: ”All my thoughts are with the family of Margaret John who played Doris in G and S.

“A great actress and an incredible lady. She will be missed.”

Comedian Rob Brydon, who played hilarious Uncle Bryn added: “Just heard the terribly sad news that Margaret John has passed away.

“What a wonderful person she was, everyone on G&S adored her.”

Margaret’s last appearance was in the new S4C drama Alys on Sunday night.
