Wendy Richard dying of cancer

Wendy Richard, the star of Are You Being Served and Eastenders has revealed she has terminal cancer. Richard, 65, who played Miss Brahms in the 70s sitcom and Pauline Fowler in the soapie, says she wants to marry her partner Richard Burns, 45, before she undergoes chemotherapy on October 13. She says her doctor had told her she has "several useful years" ahead of her, but her condition had deteriorated since then.
PS: Richard also had a role in the Beatles film Help!, as a character called Lady Macbeth, but the scene was deleted from the original cut.
