‘June Kenton has provided stellar upholstery for generations of wonderful women. She is a great, funny, dame, and in my opinion should be one for her services to womankind.’

‘Thanks to June Kenton I have remained upright, with both front lumps safely encased for all of my adult life thus far. Phew.’

Dawn French
