One random comedian, eight random questions; it's the ultimate test of funny person and fate. This week we bring you a unique double-header: first up it's Janice Connolly, the admirable character comedian, actor (remember Holy Mary from Phoenix Nights?) and all-round behind-the-scenes theatre hero, so much so that she was awarded a British Empire Medal in 2017. We don't get many of those on here.
What has Connolly been up to lately? Well she's been heavily involved in the Mrs Barbara Nice and Friends podcast. And it's gotten busier.
"We've been doing the podcast for about a year but the current situation has seen us going daily," says Connolly. "It's basically Barbara Nice talking to a wide range of people about a wide range of things - hopefully it's joyful fun."
Barbara - the force-of-nature Brummie housewife you may recall from last year's Britain's Got Talent semis - chips in to explain: "It's me talking to people I like. Now it's over the phone: it was in Paul's shed till they said we couldn't go out..."
And how is Connolly finding the lockdown?
"The current situation demonstrates how quickly things we thought were set in stone can change," she says. "Like many people my kitchen drawers have never been more streamlined. I will be glad when the ceasefire is called, but at the same time it is a relief to be off the conveyer belt for a bit."
