Queen of laughs

Daily Express - - NEWS -

QUEEN of com­edy Vic­to­ria Wood stole the show at Buck­ing­ham Palace yes­ter­day when she was awarded a CBE. But it wasn’t her first visit to the Palace – she was there in 1997 to re­ceive an OBE.

Wood, 55, must cer­tainly be get­ting ac­cus­tomed to awards cer­e­monies. The cre­ator and star of hit shows in­clud­ing As Seen On TV was named Writer of the Year in 2000 for her sit­com Din­ner­ladies.

Five years later she re­ceived a pres­ti­gious Life­time Achieve­ment Award at the Bri­tish Com­edy Awards.

With a winning streak like that, no won­der Vic­to­ria is find­ing plenty to smile about.
