The lovely Shirley Eaton was born on 12 /01/37 in Edgware. Throughout her career, she appeared with many of the top British male comedy stars from the period including Jimmy Edwards, Max Bygraves, Bob Monkhouse and Arthur Askey. Her female co-stars included Peggy Mount, Thora Hird and Dora Bryan among others. Her early roles include Three Men In A Boat (1956) and Date with Disaster (1957), in which she co-starred with Tom Drake. She also worked with The Crazy Gang in Life Is a Circus (1958) and with Mickey Spillane in The Girl Hunters (1963) in which Spillane played his own literary creation Mike Hammer.
Eaton retired from acting to raise her family and later commented in an interview with journalist James Davies on 18 June 2008, "The most important thing for me was being a woman and having a family more than being a very famous glamorous actress."
