Mary Bignall (February 10, 1940) is a British athlete. She won the gold medal in the long jump at the 1964 Summer Olympics by breaking the world record, becoming the first-ever British female to win an Olympic gold medal in a track and field event

She was referenced in Episode 11 of the First Series when Ken Voyeur protested against a lavatorial joke: "Dear sir, I object strongly to the obvious lavatorial turn this show has already taken. Why do we never hear about the good things in Britain, like Mary Bignall's wonderful jump in 1964?" Whereupon stock footage of the jump is shown, only to be interrupted by yet another letter objecting to the "obvious athletic turn the show has taken."
