I’m not scared. I’ve already had three near death experiences. Do you remember Bren? Oh, no, you weren’t there. The last one there was a light at the end of a long, dark passage and Dusty Springfield was beckoning to me with a lovely smile….turned out i’d passed out in the Mersey Tunnel with a drag act.

Victoria Wood’s words and Julie Walter’s delivery – few can match that combination for laughs and pathos.
