Morrison played Rosario Salazar, a maid from El Salvador, in the original run of Will & Grace from 1999 to 2006.

The cast for the much-loved sitcom won a Screen Actors Guild award for best ensemble in a comedy series.

Morrison’s character was originally written for a single episode.

But she proved so popular in her interactions with co-star Megan Mullally – who played Karen Walker – that she would appear in 68 episodes.

“Rosario is one of my all-time favorite characters,” Morrison said recently, according to a statement and biography announcing her death.

“She reminds me a lot of my own mother, who loved animals and children, but she would not suffer fools.

“It is very significant to me that we were able to show an older, Hispanic woman who is bright and smart and can hold her own.”

Before Will and Grace, Morrison was best known for playing Sister Sixto on The Flying Nun alongside Sally Field from 1967 to 1970.

She guest-starred on dozens of television series starting in the early 1960s, including The Fugitive, L.A. Law and Murder, She Wrote.

Most recently, she voiced a character, Mrs Portillo, on the Disney animated series Handy Manny.

Born Rachel Mitrani to Jewish parents from Spain in the Bronx, New York, in 1936, Morrison spoke primarily Spanish as a child.

She was cast primarily as Latina characters, but she played a range of ethnicities in theater, television and film.

Her movie roles put her in casts with Hollywood’s biggest stars of several eras.

She appeared with Dean Martin in 1968s How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life, with Barbara Streisand in Funny Girl the same year, with Gregory Peck in 1969s Mackennas Gold.

Morrison is survived by her husband of more than 40 years, Walter Dominguez.

Susanna Reid jokes Piers Morgan hasn’t returned to Good Morning Britain because he’s ‘barely speaking to her’

SUSANNA Reid joked Piers Morgan hasn’t returned to Good Morning Britain because he’s ‘barely speaking to her’.

The 54-year-old has been away from the ITV show since before the Easter Holidays, with Richard Madeley standing in for him this week.

Addressing Piers’ ongoing absence, Susanna said this morning: “I am of course back on the programme as you can see, lots of people wondering where Piers Morgan is this morning.”

Turning to co-host Richard, 62, she added: “But it’s absolutely lovely having you here looking after me this week.”

Susanna, 49, then gave viewers a ‘clue’ why her co-star wasn’t sat beside her this week, blaming the football results at the weekend.

She continued: “People have been asking ‘why isn’t Piers here?’ and I have been giving people a clue on Twitter.

Susanna shared a Whatsapp chat between herself and Piers discussing Crystal Palace’s win over Arsenal at the weekend

“If you look at our Whats app chat, this is from Sunday, I said to Piers ‘big day today’ as Crystal Palace travelled to Arsenal.

“He said ‘huge’, and one minute after the game finished I replied ‘huge’.”

As viewers will know, Piers is a die-hard Arsenal fan, while Susanna’s allegiance is with Crystal Palace as she is dating the club’s part-owner and chairman Steve Parish.

She said: “I’d just like to remind you of the score line, Crystal Palace 3, Arsenal 2.

Susanna joked Piers – a die hard Arsenal fan – had barely spoken to her after his team lost 3-2

“And then he said ‘I can’t talk to you right now I’m too enraged’ and he’s barely spoken to me since!”

Viewers took to the comments section to tell Susanna to continue to rub salt in Piers’ wound when he does eventually return to the show.

One wrote: “You got to wear your Crystal Palace shirt on Piers’ return. It’s got to be done… no excuses.”

Another added: “Definitely the Palace shirt his first day back.”

GMB’s Charlotte Hawkins looks unrecognisable modelling raincoats on This Morning in hilarious throwback video

GOOD Morning Britain’s Charlotte Hawkins looked unrecognisable modelling raincoats on This Morning in a hilarious throwback video.

The 43-year-old presenter was alongside guest host Richard Madeley – who used to present This Morning with his wife Judy Finnigan – when he said: “You were on This Morning once weren’t you?”

Starting to cringe, Charlotte replied: “I was, I was just thinking that as it was the first time I had ever appeared on television.”

She then begged the producers: “Please do NOT find it!No!”

Turning to Richard and Susanna Reid, she added: “While I was at university I had to model raincoats on This Morning!”

Richard, 62, replied: “I must say I’ve seen the picture, you look totally different. You don’t look like you at all.”

When Charlotte joked he meant she looked awful, he said: “No just different, in a rain coaty sort of way.”

Moments later, the clip was inevitably shown, causing Charlotte to bury her face in her hands.

As Richard sat alongside wife Judy on This Morning, Charlotte stepped onto the catwalk in a cream raincoat.

With short blonde hair, Charlotte didn’t crack a smile as she struck a pose with her snake print handbag.

Judy could be heard saying: “They really are short aren’t they?” which made Susanna and Richard laugh out loud back in the Good Morning Britain studio as Charlotte looked mortified.

She said: “I can’t believe you’ve just done that.”

Richard joked: “You look as if you’ve been out all night. You look hungover, pale, drunk.”

Charlotte laughed: “I was at uni at the time…I was trying to do the mean and moody as you walk down the catwalk look.”

Dancing on Ice troll threatens to attack Gemma Collins with a shovel to stop her performing at tonight’s final

GEMMA Collins was threatened by a troll who wanted to attack her with a shovel to stop her performing at tonight’s Dancing On Ice final.

It comes after the Towie star vowed to return to the finals of the show following her row with “bully” Jason Gardiner who called her a “refrigerator.’”

Her skate pro partner Matt Evers told the Sun Online: “Gemma has been so excited about getting back on the ice and told fans that nothing was going to stop her. Then one person wrote ‘at least not a shovel.’

“I wrote back straight away ‘I hope this is not serious.’ and reported it to Twitter.

“It’s very scary to think there is someone out there who would want to physically harm her.”

Speaking about plans to stamp out bullying on social media with Gemma, he added: “We hope there’s legislation in the future so people know that bullying on social media is not OK.

“Whether it’s about fat-shaming, race or sexuality. There needs to be consequences.”

The troll hit out at Gemma comes after the Towie star vowed to return to DOI to open the show – despite hitting out at Jason and initially refusing to return to the studios after Jason called her a “refrigerator.”

Meanwhile, the Sun Online has revealed Gemma and Jason will be kept apart for tonight’s show to avoid fireworks.

Now a source said: “Gemma and Jason will be kept separate so they won’t be crossing paths backstage tonight.

“There is still no love lost between them.

“They’re dressing rooms are on opposite sides of the venue so hopefully there won’t be any more explosions between them.”

Gemma is set to return tonight to open the show with dance pro Matt Evers skating to Beyonce’s Crazy in Love.
