      It seems, from Wikipedia, that she died on 31/01/2020 at the age of 87.

        Very sad news. She was great with Tony Hancock.

          Indeed, really sad. I know Andrée best from The Belles of St. Trinian's and an all-too-brief stint on The Benny Hill Show (Why didn't she return? She worked well with Benny). Yet to see The Brides of Dracula.


          Married to actor Oscar Quitak. They appeared together in the l1952 film So Little Time. Intriguingly, their only other joint credit is the forgotten game show He Said, She Said (presented by David Jacobs), twenty years later. The other celebrity couples were Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth, Thora Hird and Jimmy Scott, and John Arnatt and Sheila Tracy, I'd love to watch that in TV Heaven.

          My deepest condolences to all of Andrée's family and friends. Already reunited with brother George, I hope.

              The death notices are free for anyone to search, you don't need a subscription (I haven't). If the link doesn't work then perhaps you have a technical issue.
