She continued a varied career that appealed to audiences for the last 50 years.

A statement from her family said:

“Mum passed away quietly today with her family around her, in Edinburgh.

“We ask for privacy and understanding at this most difficult and sad of times.”

Her agent Rebecca Blond said:

“We are desperately sad to have lost not only a wonderful actress, whose screen and stage career, spanning over 50 years, was so extraordinarily varied, from Till Death Us Do Part to Sherlock, as well as memorable performances in the West End, at the Old Vic, Donmar Warehouse, Sheffield Crucible and National Theatre, but also a wickedly funny, elegant, stylish, graceful, gracious and kind and constant friend.

“She was also a highly respected and exhibited artist.

“We will miss her enormously and remember her always.”

Stubbs was married to actor Peter Gilmore from 1958 to 1969, with whom she adopted son Jason.

She later married Nicky Henson in 1969, before they split in 1975.

The couple had two sons, Joe and Christian, both composers.

Christian wrote on Twitter:

“Some of you may have known her as Rita, as Sally as Bat or Hudson but to my two brothers and I she was known as Mum.

“Thanks for everything Mum RIP.”
