“Aged five, while shopping in Woolworths in Harpenden, I got lost in the women’s department. And the person who found me crying in a changing room? Wonky-glassed comedy genius Eric Morecambe. Who kindly walked me to the customer services, made a funny announcement over the tannoy and then kept me amused with his ‘invisible-ball-in-a-paper-bag’ trick until my mum arrived. Lovely.”
