Dee Joins Summer Wine Cast

A Leicestershire actress has joined the cast of the long running and phenomenally popular TV series "Last of the Summer Wine".

My friend Dee Quemby, real name Deirdre, from Mountsorrel, is delighted to have been asked to play a part in the series. Like me, she has long regarded it as one of her personal favourites.

Dee is 63, and has hitherto been best known for playing Lulu Dingle in "Emmerdale".

She has recently been filming scenes for the 31st season, in and around Holmfirth.

Her part is Monica, the estranged wife of Toby, the captain of the golf club, who until now has only been spoken about, not seen.
