Sally Phillips on 'Miranda: My Such Fun Celebration'
New Year's Day 5.45pm, BBC One
Can you tell us what to expect from Miranda: My Such Fun Celebration?
What has the reaction from the fans been?
How would you describe Tilly’s friendship with Miranda?
Did you think ten years from the first Miranda the show would still be as popular today?
You always hope you’re making something that will last but no, I could never have imagined the success the show has been and what it appears to have meant to so many people.
Why do you think the show resonates with the fans so much?
I think it’s fundamentally about accepting yourself and others and staying in touch, even loving your inner idiot and the inner idiots of others.
Do you have a favourite moment from the show?
I always loved the singing and dancing, as it felt that the spirit of fun was the heart of the show even more than the jokes. There was some absolutely classic slapstick too, though which, as a lover of silent movies I really admired. The sushi bar, Miranda in the skip, all the different variants of pushing Stevie off the stool, the wrap dress caught in the taxi door… I could go on
