She also discusses her five abortions, the first three taking place before age 21, and the last occurring when she was 42; her cosmetic surgeries; and numerous nervous breakdowns and hospitalizations. She also freely admits her penchant for younger men (present husband Scott Mitchell is 26 years younger than she).

#Quote
1I am aware that I look good for my age. It's my genes. My dad looked incredibly young, so did my mother. And a younger husband helps. Scott is only 45. If he hadn't come along, I don't know what I'd have done.
2I check all my props, everything. Acting is something I love. I have done it since I was 13 but it had completely taken over my life absolutely.
3I miss EastEnders (1985) I loved it. But I was exhausted when I left. They asked me to go back recently - they've asked a few times. I am tempted! But my husband Scott says you have to really think about it. Because, towards the end, I was so exhausted and not sleeping at night. I'm not quite ready for it.
4The beautiful thing is that ageism just doesn't exist on EastEnders (1985). The show saved me.
5EastEnders (1985) has been wonderful to me and it's no secret that it changed my life all of those years ago. I'll be so sad to leave Peggy behind; she's such a wonderful character to play. I have had the pleasure of working with a marvelous cast and crew and have made many lasting good friends.
6I have had the most wonderful time on EastEnders (1985) and I will miss you all. The show has changed my life and I want you all to continue the good work, because I'll be at home watching you.
7Jessie Wallace was the first time I erupted. She was late, she was young. She's not like that any more. I lost my temper. It was silly and I burst into tears and ran up to the producer. I said I had been terrible and amateur.
8I found myself in the doldrums in the early Nineties. I was too old to play the dolly bird any longer and I looked too young to play a woman of my real age. No one ever saw me as the aunt, mother or grandmother.
9I've been incredibly lucky. I've worked in two iconic shows, 'Carry On' and EastEnders (1985). If it all ended tomorrow - and it could - I'd just be terribly grateful. I've been fortunate enough to do what I love and get paid for it.
10I am not like my image; I take my work so seriously. Everyone thinks I just bounce in, but I study and everything has to be just right.
11On not having children: I don't have any regrets about not having kids. I've just never had those maternal feelings. I am a nurturer by nature, but I nurture adults: my friends, the people I work with. I don't want to nurture children.
12[Speaking about Joan Sims in 2001 at the time of her death] "To me she was the last of the great Carry Ons. She was there at the beginning. Her talent was wonderful, she could do any accent, dialect, she could dance, sing, play dowdy and glam. We laughed all the time and giggled a lot. I will sorely miss her."
13In my late 40s I found it difficult at casting interviews because people would still think I was as young as I appeared in the Carry Ons. I would go for a part that was my age but they would have seen Carry On Camping the night before and say I was far too young.
14We didn't get a lot of money and we did always seem to be doing outside shots in winter but it paid the mortgage and I loved it. - On her Carry On movies
15It's amazing, fantastic. It's spot on and absolutely sensational. - On her Madame Tussaud's wax works model
