I wonder why Caroline Aherne was not part of the Fast Show Live shows?
I initially thought it was because she was in the middle of quite a long break-down in the late 1990's, but could be wrong. I know she was very unwell with cancer throughout her life too. But just wondered if there was any other reason.

I loved her Janine sketches where she's telling the story of her becoming pregnant and her dad kicked her out.
He said "get out the house our Janine" and called me a slapper, slut, slag. All beginning with S. Funny that int it.
Simple but magic, wasn't it?
It just occurs to me that what separates the Fast Show from most other sketch shows, is the characters present themselves directly to you, the viewer for many of their acts. Whereas other sketches are just acted out as if it were a short section in a sitcom.
"You ain't seen me, right?"
"Hello, and welcome to Jazz Club"
Janine school girl talking crap
"Does my bum look big in this"
