This is where Carry On comedy legend Leslie Phillips lived.

Location: Middleton Avenue, Chingford

Description: British comedy acting legend Leslie Phillips grew up here. The Phillips family paid 325 for the house here in Middleton Avenue in 1931 from their previous locale in Tottenham Hale.

Mr Phillips remembers doodlebug bombs falling on Chingford during the Second World War.

His brother, Fred, joined the Army to fight.

Mr Phillips' voice is known by millions as the Sorting Hat, which told the pupils of Hogwarts their various houses, in two of the Harry Potter films and also appeared in three Carry On films.

His catchphrase as a young actor was Ding, Dong, said is a slow sexy voice, and he rarely appears on a show even today without being asked to repeat it.
