Well as much as we love Dot Cotton, we think June Brown would make for an even better neighbour...actually can we just all go for pints with June?

The 86 year old actress, who has played the character for 28 years, joined Piers Morgan for his Life Stories show last night and it made for compelling viewing.

When asked if she liked Dot she said; "I wouldn't like to live next door to her or anything, not particularly, but if you play a character you have to understand them, otherwise you can't do it properly."

She openly discussed her marraige and motherhood and of course her unlikely friendship with Lady Gaga. Well we say unlikely, but after watching them on that Graham Norton show interview they seem like two peas in a pod.

Overall June Brown seems like a bit of a legend really.
