June BROWN June Brown dead: EastEnders star June Brown, best known for her iconic role as Dot Cotton, has died at the age of 95, the BBC has announced.

June's family said in a statement: "We are deeply saddened to announce our beloved mother, June, passed away very peacefully at her home in Surrey on Sunday evening, with her family by her side. We would kindly ask that our privacy is respected at this very difficult time"

Born in Needham Market, Suffolk, in 1927, she went on to have a glittering showbiz career enjoying success in film, theatre and television.

She will be most remembered for her role as matriarch Dot Cotton in long-running soap EastEnders.

Playing the Walford legend since 1985, she retired the much-loved character after 35 years in February as is one of British TV’s longest serving artists. June was good friends with her EastEnders co-star Barbara Windsor, who sadly died following a battle with Alzheimer's in 2020.

Much-loved June served in the Army. One of five children to Harry and Louisa, she was evacuated during the Second World War to Wales where she was later to become a Wren.

June put her long and full life down to which she put down to doing "what you damn well please".

In 2019 The Guardian reported that June said: "I’m going to die of something fairly soon, so why not enjoy myself."
