“Oh, flippin ‘eck,” said hrh Jane McDonald, as she took to the stage to accept the functions of price for the Channel 5 of the Cruise With Jane McDonald.

“It’s just me going on my holidays, really, who would have thought that I was going to have a Bafta, I’ve done it a long time ago, if I’ve known,” she said afterwards.

“It’s just fun, and I wanted to put the fun in the tv. I think that the cruise has such a bad reputation for a long time, and I said, ” no, I’m going to show it as it really is. And I love it, I do love a cruise.”

At this point, a journalist raised his hand and said he hated the cruise.

“You hate cruises? You have just not found the right my darling,” Jane replied.

Claire Foy, who played the young Queen Elizabeth to The Crown, obviously has a strong link with the British monarchy.

But that is not so strong that it is actually expected to see Prince Harry sea Meghan Markle, Saturday.

“I’ll be at the theatre all day. I’m going to see a matinee and an evening performance,” she said.

Without a doubt it is going to catch up on the highlights during the interval at least?

“Of course, I will, of course, I will,” she laughed.

5. Rio Ferdinand believes that men should be able to show their vulnerability

7. The author of Peaky Blinders may be able to get the help of a writer “fairy”

9. Thandie Newton slayed the red carpet
