Maddie was a sublime actress with comedy timing to die for. As a friend, we go back many decades, I shall miss her so much, her friendship, her warmth, wit and her wicked sense of humour.

I was honoured to have her and her husband, the late Brian Spink, play the leading parts in my play “The Stuff of Dreams”, and they were my dream team. She had star quality and was well known and loved in the business. I shall never forget her.
