"I love Judi Dench, don't get me wrong, but I genuinely believe Liz Dawn brought more pleasure to more people than any woman born in Britain in the last 100 years.

"It just spoke to me something inside me like nothing else on the telly has since.

"Just because it was a soap opera doesn't mean I'm going to hold back from using superlatives."
