thanks so much...

Sometimes we wonder how our beloved columnist, SANDI TOKSVIG manages to find the time to compose her words of wit and wisdom for GH every month. First she was made presenter of QI on the BBC, and this month she’ll pop up on The Great British Bake Off as the much-loved show pitches its tent with Channel 4. Of course we wanted to know all about it and Sandi gives us an exclusive peek at what it is like to be in cake heaven. In I Don’t Know How She Does It, we were given a heroine as busy as we are. Now writer ALLISON PEARSON has come up with her sequel, How Hard Can It Be. In our exclusive interview, she explains why it’s a clarion call for anyone dealing…

‘i’ve missed out on screen kisses perhaps l still have one to come!’

She reigns over the British acting world, having played Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria to critical acclaim. But there is nothing imperious about Dame Dench when you meet her in person. She has a twinkling glint in her eye, an infectious laugh and frequently breaks into fits of giggles.

Even failing eyesight – she suffers from macular degeneration – doesn’t stop her taking on more roles. In her latest release, Victoria & Abdul, she steps back into Queen Victoria’s royal shoes two decades after her famous role in Mrs Brown opposite Billy Connolly. The new film focuses on Victoria’s little-known friendship with a young Indian Muslim clerk who she met in her…

I think being allowed to see how a crew put together a show is still my favourite part of the work I do. It’s a bit like being allowed to learn the secret to a huge magic trick – on screen, everything ought to look effortless, while off screen, dozens of people race to make it happen. I’ve known this all my life, yet I’m not sure even I was prepared for how busy the Bake Off tent is. I knew there would be cameras; I had no idea there would be so many. I knew there would be producers: again, it was the numbers that bowled…
