Watch as UK legend Ricky Tomlinson talks about the “absolutely tremendous” Caroline Aherne!
He is being interviewed on RTE One TV’s The Ray Darcy Show. For those who do not know Caroline was an English comedy writer / actress (of Irish parents) and acclaimed as a BAFTA winning comedy goddess and possibly one of the most talented female comedy stars of her generation. We all loved her the acerbic chat show host Mrs Merton – plus for various roles in the BBC classic sketch series The Fast Show – and best of all her starring role in the The Royle Family, which she co-wrote. Ricky Tomlinson played her long suffering father.
She was also known for narrating the Channel 4 reality television series Gogglebox, a role she held from its inception in 2013 until she became too ill in April 2016.
