I wanted to go on stage ever since I was 16 and got a part in a thing we did at school called The Dracula Spectacular.
I can still remember the whoops and the laughter from the audience and the goosebumps that appeared all over my skin. From then on I never wanted to do anything else. I've no idea where it comes from, especially the comedy. But my family are the sort of people that everyone warms to
I once took my mum and dad to a TV recording of An Audience With Ken Dodd. There was a fish and chip supper for everyone afterwards and Ken, who had never clapped eyes on them before, sat with them for hours, telling jokes. My parents were always like that. They drew people to them like magnets.
