Sue Upton is no doubt best-known, best-remembered, and best-loved by her fans for her many appearances on The Benny Hill Show.This page is my attempt to catalog all her appearances on the show from 1977 through 1983. (For the second page, covering 1984 through 1991, click here.)

These years see Sue's debut, her rapid rise in status to a valued member of Benny's stock company, many various roles acting in comedy sketches (including her favorite character, Wondergran) - and of course, most of her unforgettable appearances as a founding member of Hill's Angels.
