Oh I am so sad, Victoria Wood was my comedy hero. I have loved her and her work for many years and this is evident of the pod-casts and audio-books that I have about my person at all times. Dinnerladies was my favourite sitcom and for me, watching it, was like eating comfort food. I hoped she would have liked that.
I went to a BBC conference in 2011 that she was the speaker at, but I was too star struck to ask her a question. I attended for no other reason than she would be there. It had NOTHING to do with my job. I filmed it though for posterity:
She was brilliant, funny an amazing writer and just happened to be a women. I am gutted.
RIP Victoria Wood – I can’t do it, I can’t do it tooonniiigght!!!
