The Upper Hand stars Kellie Bright and Joe McGann pay tribute to Honor Blackman after her death at the age of 94.

The stars of The Upper Hand have paid tribute to legendary actress Honor Blackman following her death at the age of 94.

Blackman's 70-year career in the industry saw her take on multiple roles on the small and silver screens, including as the iconic Pussy Galore in Goldfinger, and one of her latter roles was as randy OAP Laura West in the '90s sitcom The Upper Hand.

The series told the story of a wealthy woman who advertises for a housekeeper and decides to appoint a man, played by Joe McGann, who moves into the home with his young daughter - played by future EastEnders actress Kellie Bright.

Bright took to Twitter to post a heartfelt tribute to Blackman, having first met her on the show as a 14-year-old.

She wrote: "Darling Honor, thank u for being such a huge part of my early life and for teaching me so much. You were so talented, fun and had the naughtiest twinkle in your eye! You will always be in my Red heart and I still think of you as family. Rest in perfect peace xx"

McGann posted: "Just heard the very sad news that dear Honor has died. What a woman she was- fiercely bright, superbly funny and a wonderful actress on screen and onstage. I loved every day of working with her and I loved and respected her with all my heart RIP"

In a statement, Blackman's family confirmed that she had passed away peacefully at home of natural causes.
