Oh dear. That is awful news. I always thought she was a brilliant actress in her role as dippy Alice.

Sad when the good ones go especially so young, RIP Alice. ��

She was the one that brought most of the laughs to The Vicar of Dibley. So sad and far too young. RIP Emma.

I always thought she was a brilliant actress in her role as dippy Alice.

She was very much a character actress - always played the same sort of parts. But she was definitely the standout character in that series; she had exactly the right face for the role.


Some of her dottyness was hysterical.

"I really like that new book from the bible."

(Dawn French) "Err...... Which book"?

"The Da Vinci Code".

Plus I rather fancied her........

The episode with the copperplate "s's" was hysterical and she was a good character balance for Geraldine - as were the Parish Councillors!
RIP Emma/Alice

Bit of a time warp there - that linked BBC page was dated 14 August 2015, and Stephen "Blakey" Lewis had died two days earlier.
