Carol Burdette

Also known as Carol Burnett

Carol was a stunning brunette from Enfield in Middlesex. Brewster assures us she was a farmer’s wife and worked as assistant in a chemist’s shop.

She had fabulous legs, a wonderful figure and the prettiest of faces, which, for some reason, assumed a different level of beauty when she had her hair cropped.

Carol is another of those enigmatic models about whom we are given precious little information. Nearly all her photo shoots are accompanied by the silly narratives relating some daft story about what is going on in the sequences.

There is another morsel of statistics to be gleaned about her from analysis of her career. In 9 out of 20 appearances – nearly half of them − she is photographed wearing directoire knickers. Of the 90 or so models (out of the more than 4,600 in the ToCo empire) seen sporting these abominations, none comes anywhere near that figure. To quote a Neil Sedaka song, Oh Carol!
