Carry On Dining! Three stars from classic British comedies reunite for a night out at a restaurant
The films were known for their saucy innuendos and drew millions of fans to cinemas in their heyday.
But former Carry On stars Jacki Piper, Valerie Leon and Anita Harris played it straight as they got together for a night out. The trio shared memories as they were pictured in a restaurant by their friend Barry Langford.
Miss Piper, 75, held onto 78-year-old Miss Leon’s arm as they posed alongside Miss Harris, 80. Miss Leon and Miss Piper starred in 1970’s Carry On Up The Jungle while Miss Harris played a nurse in 1967’s Carry On Doctor.

Miss Leon appeared in six films in the series including Carry On Again Doctor in 1969. She was also in two James Bond films and The Italian Job.
The Carry On series spanned 31 movies from 1958 to 1992 and made huge stars of Barbara Windsor, Sid James and Kenneth Williams. Mr Langford shared the picture on Twitter and wrote: ‘At dinner last night with three of my closest friends, who just happen to be #Carry On legends… Should caption this photo “Carry On Again Girls”!’
He hailed Miss Leon as an ‘eternally glamorous screen siren’. She replied: ‘Oh Barry, you are a flatterer!’
Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer, 67, also attended the meal on Sunday night.
