EX­EC­U­TIVE ED­I­TOR

Best - - CONTENTS -

I was lucky enough to get one of the hottest tick­ets in town last week – a chance to see Vic­to­ria & Ab­dul, out this Fri­day.

The film charts the un­likely friend­ship between Queen Vic­to­ria (played by Dame Judi Dench) and her In­dian clerk.

It sounds like the cast had as great a time mak­ing it as you will watch­ing it. Ed­die Iz­zard, who plays Vic­to­ria’s son, Ber­tie, told me that Judi, 82, was the life and soul on set.

‘I was play­ing Ray Charles and danc­ing in between film­ing. Then, Judi came in and started danc­ing, too,’ he told us.

Let me know what you think of the film when you see it – and re­mem­ber to take tis­sues.

Please let me know your thoughts, siobhan. wykes@hearst.co.uk
