Oh, I used to love Sheila Steafel on The Good Old Days and on her occasional one-woman shows on Radio 4. RIP.

Very sad, another huge talent in comedy and drama.

Brilliant in "Frost Report", but "Ghosts Of Motley Hall" is a big favourite.

In an old interview, she said she thought she had worked out who the White Lady was, but wouldn't say.

The earliest of the ghosts, always making out she didn't know who she was, she was lying, whenever a guest character threatened to reveal her secret, she would steer events away from any revelation.

We may never know!
