Personal Quote:

[talking about her plans for her final Christmas, on the women's magazine programme "Loose Women" a few days before she died, in a programme that was shown as a tribute just after her death] I *am* going to make it to Christmas. Bloody right, I am. I AM! See more »

Trivia:

From 2007 to 2011, she was a regular panellist on the daytime chat show Loose Women (1999). She later regretted this as she felt it made people think of her as a TV personality instead of an actress. See more »
