I am a kid in the dressing-up box at heart.
We have to do a film parody for Comic Relief. We can’t decide which film to parody at the moment. Any ideas welcome, but not Spiderman owing to costume being too tight.
Turning 50 can be difficult, sometimes dangerous, for women. The danger is in that blip that can come from the fact that you become invisible, and if you’re not careful and don’t embrace that, it can trip you up and you lose confidence.
My approach to parenting is that everything is open – everything. I’m not very good at covert, or subtle, and I’ve had to learn timing. I do blunder in a bit.

Young people need their own private places which mothers don’t belong to, even if they want mother all around the edge of that.
I have had the unfortunate experience of having someone write an unauthorised biography of me. Half of it is lies and the other half is badly written. My feeling is that if I’m going to write my life story, I ought to have my life first.
Writing has become my great joy – I simply love it.
The person I have admired the most in comedy terms would be Eric Morecambe, who is my total hero.

I’ve always loved kissing. We all do, don’t we?
I don’t know what the future holds, but I have to be confident about it. It’s just the way I am.
I haven’t really ever had to audition for anything.
I’m known among my friends for saying things I probably shouldn’t sometimes, but I have to get things out in the air.
The only time I did not know how to be, physically, was when I lost a lot of weight. That was the only time I didn’t understand my body.
