From Standing Room Only, 12:37 pm on 14 June 2020

Celia Imrie is best known as a staple of English film comedies - notably Calendar Girls, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and the upcoming Love Sarah. But she's been equally prolific on television - from the classic Victoria Wood sketch show to her latest - American hit comedy drama Better Things. Along the way Celia has been a welcome presence in everything from Star Wars and Doctor Who to Bridget Jones and Doc Martin! And she's also found time to have a side career as a best-selling novelist. Her books include Not Quite Nice, Nice work (if you can get it) and the irresistible The Happy Hoofer. Celia Imrie talks to Lynn Freeman about acting and Acorn Antiques.
