Did you spot her? When schoolgirl Tanya (Vivian Oparah) takes refuge in a minimart, June is the woman at the counter, stocking up on booze, who comes out with the cracking line: “I caught my husband fiddling with himself on the stairs.” Oo-er! In the credits the character is named as 'Mrs Linderhof', while she is billed as 'Laura June Hudson' – the name she uses for acting roles.
She was a regular in Ricky Gervais’s C4 comedy Derek, and this year appeared as herself in Barry Humphries’s C4 doc, A Granny’s Guide to the Modern World. But how did she land this quirky little cameo in Class? “June came in to read for it and stole the scene,” exec producer Brian Minchin tells RT. “She’s amazing! We love her.”
