I remember her, she was beautiful, and I saw her fairly recently in an episode of Absolutely Fabulous, and she was still beautiful

She was heavily involved with animal charities in later life I believe.
Lucky she couldn't read my mind with her "Special" senses :)

You know you're getting old when those you 'fancied' start dying....'The Champions was on tv 45 years ago'...How time flies...

She carried that show, the Champions, because her co stars were a pair of planks.

My brain must be in need of an overhaul, but I have no recollection of a show called the Champions. Can anyone provide a reminder?

The Champions was British TV at its very worst, rivalling even the Australian 'Prisoner cell block H' for sheer awfulness. It's one saving grace was Alexandra Bastedo.;
Here is the opening sequence featuring her and her two wooden companions.

No one remember her in a thriller called "Who Paid The Ferryman". ? Think it was set in Crete ? What a cracker she was. !
