EastEnders Dot Cotton filming in Thorpe Bay

Echo: Star turn – EastEnders actress June Brown leaves a house in Thorpe Bay Star turn – EastEnders actress June Brown leaves a house in Thorpe Bay

EASTENDERS favourite Dot Cotton was to be seen in Thorpe Bay as the soap filmed some scenes.

Actress June Brown, 84, who has played Albert’s Square’s favourite chain-smoking gossip since 1985, was first on the beach and then at a home in Thorpe Esplanade.

A BBC spokeswoman was not giving anything away about the storyline.

She said: “All I’ll say is we are filming some big episodes, which we plan to broadcast later this summer. It’s not our policy to comment on episodes like this so early.”

You obviously care enough to comment on it! The editor decides what's news and what's not.

Just my opinion but I think this is a dreadful programme.

Clearly at least 16 million people don't agree with me.

Ah good old Echo - it's not just June Brown, there's a lot of the cast in Southend filming scenes along the seafront and in town...

Guess they didn't spot the big BBC trucks and cameras then

Yes, what a dreadful episode that was, especially with Elsie Tanner and Ena Sharples laughing like that.

Put me right off soaps for good.

i love eastenders, since bryan kirkwood took over as executive producer it's got even better :-)
the only complaint i have is that i think they need to introduce more characters in the 16-27 and 60+ age range.

Yeah, yeah, but all is not lost:

An older Jewish gentleman marries a younger lady and they are very much in love. However, no matter what the husband does sexually, the woman never achieves ****. Since a Jewish wife is entitled to sexual pleasure, they decide to ask the rabbi.

The rabbi listens to their story, strokes his beard, and makes the following suggestion. "Hire a strapping young man. While the two of you are making love, have the young man wave a towel over you. That will help the wife fantasize and should bring on an ****."

They go home and follow the rabbi's advice. They hire a handsome young man and he waves a towel over them as they make love. But it doesn't help and she is still unsatisfied. Perplexed, they go back to the rabbi.

"Okay," says the rabbi, "let's try it reversed. Have the young man make love to your wife and you wave the towel over them."

Once again, they follow the rabbi's advice. The young man gets into bed with the wife and the husband waves the towel. The young man goes to work with great enthusiasm and the wife soon has an enormous, volcanic, room-shaking screaming ****. The husband smiles, looks at the young man and says to him triumphantly,

"You see, THAT'S the way to wave a towel.

Or:

A doctor and his wife were having a big argument at breakfast.

"You aren't so good in bed either!" he shouted and stormed off to work. By mid-morning, he decided he'd better make amends and called home.

"What took you so long to answer?"

"I was in bed," his wife said. "What were you doing in bed this late?" he asked. She replied,

"Getting a second opinion."

And finally:

Why it is better to live your life backwards

You start off dead and get that out of the way, people cry and say some wonderful things about you and make up with people they haven’t been on speaking terms with for years

Then you wake up in an old people’s home and start feeling better every day
You are asked to leave for being too healthy

You collect your pension

Then when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day and again, people say some really wonderful things about you

You work 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your life

All this time you are married and although you start off very used to each other, almost bored, your love becomes more intense and passionate as the years go by

As your children get steadily younger they finally understand they are supposed to do things ‘because you say so.’

You get married and after that you are crazily, blindly and irrationally in love, and the sex is AMAZING

You become a student and drink alcohol, party, be generally promiscuous, and get ready for secondary school

At secondary school the lessons get easier and easier as time goes on

At the same time you come to realise that you know the answer to everything and also become invincible

You go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, life is carefree, you have no responsibilities

You become a baby, people look after you in every way and even think it is cute when you f a r t

And then you spend your last 9 months floating peacefully in luxury, in spa-like conditions; central heating, room service, larger quarters every day

Maybe, but remember the only way you will escape ageing is by dying young.

Take your pick, I know my preference.

Eventually many people reach a point when they stop lying about their age, and start bragging about it.
