Beat Me On The Bottom With A Woman’s Weekly: RIP Victoria Wood

The cruel year of 2016 has taken yet another celebrity I grew up with in the UK. This time it’s the much-loved comedian, Victoria Wood.

I remember watching her sketch shows and laughing so hard – she really was so talented both in front of and behind the camera. One of my favourite sketches from her was when she was looking for her friend, Kimberley…

 

Victoria was also brilliant at comedy songs and the one I’m sure everyone is thinking of today is “The Ballad Of Barry & Freda” so here is the lady herself introducing the song – if you have never watched it, please watch now…

 

Thanks Victoria for all the laughs and my thoughts are with your family today.

  1. Such a very sad loss. No wonder she was such a Gay Icon. Her comedy never failed to make me laugh. For me, my favorite sketch of her’s was when she and Julie Walters were in a line at a Canteen.
    “Excuse me, what’s the soup of the day?”
    “Country Vegetable.”
    “Which country? Taiwan?!”
