Personal Quote:

[on her favourite album] I've got about 20, but if it's just one, it's got to be Sgt. Pepper. I was in London when it was released, and everywhere you went, they were playing Sgt. Pepper, it was the soundtrack to our lives. Two close seconds are Blue by Joni Mitchell and Harvest by Neil Young. See more »

Trivia:

She is a friend of Fran Drescher and it was Drescher's interaction with Twiggy's children that was used as the basis for Drescher's hit show The Nanny (1993). See more »
