Star told to pipe down after she goes into cinema to see herself
Choudary and wife Rubana leave the Mcdonald’s and stroll on his outing from the hostel where he is staying It turned out the annoying woman talking during a special screening of new West End musical Funny Girl was its star – Sheridan herself. The actress had sneaked into a local cinema disguised under a baseball cap to watch her own performance Star Smith in the lead role as Brooklyn music hall singer Fanny Brice.
But Katie Bruce-green failed to recognise her as she shushed her – and didn’t believe her when she apologised and told her who she was. She only found out who she had told off when the 37-year-old HATE preacher Anjem Choudary tastes freedom – as he prepares to tuck into a Mcdonald’s meal.
Choudary, 51, was freed from prison last month after being jailed for inviting support to the Islamic State.
On Friday he was spotted ordering a burger and fries before tucking in at the restaurant with his wife Rubana.
An onlooker said: “I couldn’t see if it was a Happy Meal, but it certainly made Anjem smile. Given his apparent hatred for the West, it seemed ironic to see him inside one of its most celebrated symbols.”
Choudary – who once headed the al-muhajiroun network, an extremist group banned under terror laws – is staying at a North London bail hostel.
Choudary is on licence after serving half of a five-and-a-half-year sentence. star mentioned it on Twitter. Sheridan tweeted: “I snuck into a local cinema so I could watch it with u all and someone told me to shush and sit still. “Totally rained on my parade!” Red-faced Katie replied: “I am so sorry! That was me. Just didn’t recognise you! The baseball cap is a deceptive disguise in the dark and when you apologised I was too embarrassed to look at you properly even when you said: “I’m Sheridan.”
“My friends might actually kill me as we are huge fans.”
The Cilla and Gavin & Stacey star thanked fans for supporting the one-off showings at Vue Cinemas, saying: “You have no idea how much it means.”
