Carry On Dining! Three stars from classic British comedies reunite for a night out at a restaurant
Continue dining! Three stars of classic British comedies get together for a night out at a restaurant
The films were known for their snappy allusions and drew millions of fans to the cinemas in their heyday.
But former Carry On stars Jacki Piper, Valerie Leon and Anita Harris clearly played it when they got together for a night out. The trio shared memories as they were pictured at a restaurant by their friend Barry Langford.
Miss Piper, 75, held 78-year-old Miss Leon’s arm as they posed next to Miss Harris, 80. Miss Leon and Miss Piper starred in 1970s Carry On Up The Jungle, while Miss Harris played a nurse in Carry On Doctor from 1967.

Miss Leon appeared in six films in the series, including Carry On Again Doctor in 1969. She was also in two James Bond films and The Italian Job.
The Carry On series spanned 31 films from 1958 to 1992 and made big stars of Barbara Windsor, Sid James and Kenneth Williams. Langford shared the photo on Twitter, writing: “At dinner last night with three of my closest friends who happen to be #Carry On legends… Should caption this photo ‘Carry On Again Girls’!”
He greeted Miss Leon like an “eternally glamorous screen siren.” She replied, ‘Oh Barry, you are a flatterer!’
Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer, 67, also attended the Sunday night meal.
