In his new series Living the Dream on Sky Arts, Melvyn Bragg talks to other celebs about eventful moments in their lives but the tables were turned when he was faced with Joanna Lumley.
The Absolutely Fabulous star, 65, pointed out that Lord Bragg, 72, was constantly moving his legs and feet around. “For a fomous broadcaster you have got to keep your feet still,” said Joanna. “You’re just it, you are a very little person!”
The broadcasting veteran, who started his career at the BBC in 1961, admitted he still suffers from anxiety before any TV appearances. He says: “I get nervous before this I went to the loo and locked the door and I tried to think about nothing. I’m sometimes quite bad and it can get hold of you.”
