Queenie Watts (21 July 1926 – 25 January 1980) was an English actress of film and television, as well as an occasional singer.

Watts was born and died in London. She appeared in many British films, including the Joan Littlewood production Sparrers Can't Sing (1963), and as herself in "Portrait of Queenie" (1964), featuring in scenes set around Poplar, the Isle of Dogs and, The Iron Bridge Tavern, Millwall, which she ran in real life and in which she starred in the TV series Stars and Garters (1963). She also appeared in Ken Loach's Poor Cow (1967), in the film version of Up the Junction (1968), as a pub landlady in All Coppers Are... (1972), and as the ill-fated housekeeper in the horror film Schizo (1976). She also appeared in many British 1970s sex comedies including Keep It Up, Jack (1973), Intimate Games (1976), Come Play with Me (1977) and Confessions from the David Galaxy Affair (1979). She was often seen in television programmes through the 1960s and 1970s, including the successful, but critically panned, Romany Jones (1972–75) and its sequel Yus, My Dear (1976) in which Arthur Mullard featured as her husband. Watts also appeared with Mullard, playing Lily and Wally Briggs from Romany Jones, in the third On the Buses film spin-off Holiday on the Buses in 1973. She was also a mainstay of the comedy drama series Beryl's Lot appearing as Beryl's neighbor Freda Mills from 1973-75

Watts appeared in Dad's Army in the role of Mrs Edna Peters, also in several episodes of Dixon of Dock Green in different roles, in two episodes of Callan (appearing as the aunt of petty crook Lonely, played by Russell Hunter), and in the comedy-drama Beryl's Lot (1973–75) and one episode of Steptoe and Son (1972). She appeared in three episodes of the Play for Today anthology series for the BBC, including Waterloo Sunset transmitted on 23 January 1979.

She ran pubs (including the Iron Bridge Tavern, East India Dock Road, London and the Rose and Crown, Pennyfields, Poplar) with her husband, "Slim Watts", where she also sang and played piano with an eight-piece band to pull in more customers. She appeared in the 1966 film version of Alfie, singing "Goodbye, Dolly Gray" in a memorable, riotous bar-room brawl sequence, and also appeared as a pub singer in the Tommy Steele film Half a Sixpence in 1967. Portrait of Queenie, in which she sang original compositions by James Stevens brought forth a vinyl record of the same name.

Queenie Watts died from cancer in 1980, aged 53.
