Actress Emily Perry, who played Dame Edna Everage's sidekick Madge Allsop, has died at the age of 100.

The performer, who played the megastar's taciturn and long-suffering bridesmaid for many years, was 80 when she first took on the role in 1987.

Perry appeared on Dame Edna's ITV star-studded shows and travelled the world as part of comic Barry Humphries' stage spectaculars.

She lived at Brinsworth House, a London retirement home for entertainers.

Wow! She has lead a long life, Philip.

She was absolutely brilliant and her downtrodden stoic glares were brilliant. The best part of the Dame Edna Experience.
