Jennifer was one in a million wasn't she? I loved a quote from the producer Pamela Llewellyn when asked if they embellished her stories, anecdotes and and songs for the camera, and she replied that if anything they had to tone her down somewhat. My favourite episode is her making caphrina cocktails with the driver of the Brazilian embassy in a posh hotel in London, singing in Portugese! (Sorry I am a huge Two Fat Ladies fan!!!)

My final anecdote of the day is when Jennifer was in hospital seriously ill with lung cancer, the Prince of Wales sent her some ice cream from his estate in Scotland, raising a difficult question of ettiquette, if a member of royalty sends you something in a tupperware container, can you keep it or do you send the container back???

Kyles;
Another anecdote about her last days. her friends kept bringing her flowers. She told them (allegedly);
"Flowers? I'm dying aren't I? bring me caviar, champagne and truffles, then!"
