JANUARY - APRIL

Home at the beginning of the month from panto in New Brighton - my 14th season playing Dame (6th year for UK Productions);

It was a lot of fun this year - lovely theatre, fantastic cast, and great audiences.

Nipped away for a quick week in the sun (although Lanzarote wasn’t quite as warm and sunny as it has been in past years) and then started worrying about a getting some work for the year. Luckily I had “Guys & Dolls” lined up for June, but there was five months to fill first. Or so I thought…


OLD NEWS

A week after coming back from holiday I got a phone call from

Ray Cooney offering me a part in his farce, “Two Into One”.

Thrilled to be working with Ray again (and

other friends in the cast) - and I love

The Chocolate Factory! (Even if it doesnt

actually produce chocolate anymore.)

Well I’d known since November, but didn't want to say anything until the new Market Inspector, Aleks Shirov took over my job on the Bridge Street Market; unfortunately I wasn't available to shoot leaving scenes as I was up in New Brighton rehearsing for panto.

I originally went into the soap for three episodes that went out in January 2008, and ended up staying for 6 years, during which time I met some lovely people, had a lot of fun and a few really good storylines.

…and the Specsavers ad was back on TV in January too.


In January I recorded

a series of voice-overs for

Royal Caribbean International.

I was ensconced in Runyonland from the end of June to the end of September; it was a wonderful company and I had a great time (loved living in my campervan down in Chichester - although the 6 mile cycle into work and back after the show got harder as the run went on).
