R I P Brigit
Yet another one gone - I remember her well in Likely Lads as Thelma. Not very old either. As has been raised elsewhere, why do so many pop off at Christmastime ?

I did not know who she was but there have been a flurry of deaths over the past couple of days, including John Byrne who was previously in a long term relationship with Tilda swinton
"Aww, she was good in The Likely Lads."
"I watched her in The Likely Lads..."
Just for completeness, she did not appear in the TV series of that name.
"The Likely Lads" ran for 20 episodes over three series from 1964-66. Although her character (Thelma Chambers) was mentioned in the final episode (she had dated Bob Ferris but had dropped him) she did not appear.
Her first appearance came in the opening episode of "Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads" in January 1973. When the story begins, she and Bob had been reunited and were engaged. "Whatever Happened.." ran for two series of 13 episodes each plus a Christmas Special in 1973-74, with Brigit, as Thelma Ferris (nee Chambers), appearing in 21 of them.
However, Thelma did feature in the cinema spinoff to "Whatever Happened.." which was entitled simply "The Likely Lads" and this was released in 1976.
I would get out more but I've been too busy watching my box sets of The Likely Lads and Whatever Happened To Them.
