Writing on Twitter, Edgar said: “It’s my sad duty to report that actress and artist, the magnificent Margaret Nolan has passed away.

“She was the middle of Venn diagram of everything cool in the 60′s; having appeared with the Beatles, been beyond iconic in Bond and been part of the Carry On cast too.”

He added: “I worked with her last year as she plays a small role in Last Night In Soho. She was so funny, sharp and, as you might imagine, full of the most amazing stories. I’m so glad I got to know her.

“My heart goes out to her family and all that loved her. She will be much missed.”
