I’m proud to announce that I’ll be appearing in Victoria Wood’s Mid-Life Christmas, a 60-minute special for BBC One.
I’ll be coming live from Brentford as Victoria’s co-host of the much anticipated Mid-Life Olympics 2009. Victoria Wood’s Mid-Life Christmas also features the popular costume drama Lark Pies To Cranchesterford and the further adventures of soap star Bo Beaumont, played by long-term collaborator Julie Walters.
Victoria said: “The show is a whole night’s telly crammed into one hour. Christmas is a stressful time and, by compressing an evening’s viewing into 60 minutes, we hope families will have more time for other festive traditions such as arguing with relatives and defrosting turkeys under the hot tap.”
