Gilly Flower (26 August 1908 - February 2001) was an English actress, best remembered as the elderly Miss Abitha Tibbs in the cult BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers.

Gilly Flower played Miss Tibbs in all twelve episodes of the show, which was produced in two six-episode series separated by a three-and-a-half-year interval (September-October 1975 and February-March 1979, with the twelfth episode shown in October 1979). In 1983, along with Renee Roberts, who played Miss Tibbs' companion, Miss Ursula Gatsby, she reprised the role (albeit briefly) in the long-running BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses.
