Col­man’s mus­tard but Maskell’s a Ray of sun­shine

OLIVIA COL­MAN will prob­a­bly bag a sack of gongs for her gritty por­trayal of a high-rise mum in crack­ing Chan­nel 4 drama Run.

How­ever, the un­sung star of the show was Neil Maskell as her ex-fella, a psy­chotic Cock­ney called Kieran.

Not many peo­ple can make eat­ing an ap­ple look in­tim­i­dat­ing – but Maskell did ex­actly that. You might say he is, ahem, “hard core”.

TV ex­ecs take note: this guy is the nat­u­ral heir to Ray Win­stone, and prob­a­bly a lot cheaper.

Cast him as a lead – NOW! – or I’ll cam raand your aase and eat ev­ery last fackin’ ap­ple in your fruit bowl, you mugs. “JUST think of me as Switzer­land in glasses,” said Coro­na­tion Street stal­wart Deirdre to Carla, to in­di­cate her neu­tral­ity in the lat­est fam­ily feud.

Never mind Switzer­land. The pair she wore in the 1980s could have cov­ered most of cen­tral Europe.
