Andrée Melly (born 15 September 1928) is an English actress.
Born in Liverpool, Lancashire, she appeared in many British films, including the comedy The Belles of St Trinian's (1954) and the Hammer Horror film The Brides of Dracula (1960). In between, she played Tony Hancock's girlfriend in two series of Hancock's Half Hour (1955–56) radio series. In 1958 she appeared with the Jamaican actor Lloyd Reckord in the Ted Willis play Hot Summer Night, a production which was later adapted for the Armchair Theatre series in 1959. She continued to appear on British television until 1991.
In the early years of the long-running BBC radio comedy Just a Minute she was a regular panellist. Along with Sheila Hancock, she was one of the most regular female contestants, appearing in fifty-four episodes between 1967 and 1976. In 1972, she chaired an episode. She was the first panellist to win points for talking for the prescribed 60 seconds without hesitation, repetition or deviation.
