Just a quick story from my lovely actress niece Georgina.
George is currently touring the length and breadth of the the country in panto before (probably) heading back across the Atlantic to resume her acting career in the Big Apple.
So imagine the scene, panto fans, as the lovely Mary Weather encourages the audience with her line:
"Cross your fingers and wish me luck!"
To which the response from today's audience was the lone voice of a small child:
Recover from that if can, Mrs Fairy Pants.
