Katie Boyle RIP

What's Hot

Those of us of a certain age will remember her well:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-12525627

Surprised to read she only presented Song for Europe 4 times, I thought she was involved in more shows.

She was an animal lover, and in later life she was involved with Battersea Dogs' Home.

RIP "the face of Camay".

Grown most uncommonly fat!

    I remember her on those old soap ads and the Eurovision shows too.
    She always came across as posh, but game for a laugh.
    RIP Katie.

    I only remember her from Eurovision, I’m surprised it was only 4 times, and when I’ve seen clips of What’s My Line. Good innings though, RIP. 
    Dum dum dum, dum dum de dum, dum dum dum, dum dummmm.

    I remember her tips in TV Times - "stuffing old pairs of tights with ping pong balls is an ideal solution to releasing political prisoners in Peru". Or maybe that was Alexei Sayle?  

    Speaking of agony aunts, I found out yesterday that the fat bloke off Masterchef (Jay Rayner) is the son of Claire Rayner. It's obvious, when you know.

    Remember her well. Always had a bit of a thing for posh birds. 
     so if you fancy a reissue of a guitar they never made in a colour they never used then it probably isn't too overpriced.

    Blimey, 91! She had a good long life and I had a proper "who knew" moment when I read about her background. I was born in early 70's, so I only ever recognised her name as the Agony Aunt. Never knew how much more she'd done.
    Stupidity is what will kill us all in the end.

    I was much more aware of her - my dad (who was 50 when I was born - I’m now 54) - was a massive fan! :)

    I’d never connected the two either, but like you say, obvious when you think about it. 

    I remember Katy Boyle from travel programs more than anything else, think she did them with Cliff Mitchelmore? RIP.
