Enders star honoured with Doctorate

EastEnders actress Pam St Clement has been given an honorary Doctorate of Education by Plymouth University.

St Clement, who has played Pat Butcher for 22 years, qualified in teaching before turning to an acting career.

She was awarded the honour at Exeter Cathedral earlier today.

"I did teach drama at secondary level in London very briefly, then went to drama school," said the 66-year-old.

"I do not think I was a good teacher, so I do not think I was a loss to the profession."

Speaking about her future on the BBC One soap, she commented: "As far as my desires are concerned, I have always said I think there is a lot in the character to go.

"I think I would like to go on exploring it while it interests the audience and while it interests me."
