Do you remember her with Cliff Richard in Summer Holiday and recently in Sherlock?

I think she did either ‘Portrait artist of the year’ or ‘ Landscape artist’. She was very gentle and insightful .

I too loved her in her role in the Sky Arts artist programmes. She clearly knew what she was talking about and was gentle and encouraging to the contestants.

That's what I remember her for. She was so nice and encouraging and friendly.
Lachlan Goudie posted a painting she'd done of him. It was very good, very ' her' somehow. He said it was his wife's favourite portrait of him.

Sad. Lovely lady. I believe she was a trained ballet dancer.

She seemed a lovely person - bright, talented, energetic and funny. I liked her - she came across as someone whose company you would enjoy.

I believe she had paintings exhibited at The Royal Academy.

Bless her soul, Una was such a lovely lady and a brilliant actress, I mainly remember her with Cliff Richard and also Til Death Do Us Part and more recently on the Art programme. Rest In Peace Dear Una.

Sadly, we are in the era of stars of our youth gradually fading to the firmament - they shine in the galaxy, shine on our stars x

liked her in many things but loved her as Aunt Sally with Jon Pertwee as Worzel. I particularly enjoyed how well she played rather greedy and horrid aunt sally grabbing most of the cake for herself etc. Power to the woman!!

I have always loved Una Stubbs. ‘Summer Holiday’ was one of the first films I saw as a child and became woven into the fabric of my childhood. I have always been delighted to see her performances and loved her particularly as Aunt Sally to Jon Pertwee’s wonderful Worzel Gummidge. I hope she is continuing to wow them in Heaven! Thank you, Una.

She has had a wonderful career, my first recollection was with Alf Garnett. Wonderful actress.
