Actor and comedian John Thomson looks back at the life and work of his friend and comedy colleague - the late, and greatly-missed Caroline Aherne.

From rarely seen early routines from Caroline's days on the Manchester stand-up circuit, through to some favourite moments from The Fast Show, Mrs Merton and The Royle Family, John is our guide as we wallow in a special selection of clips, characters and magic moments.

To misquote Mrs Merton's famous line to Debbie McGee, this is a collection that reveals exactly what it was that first attracted us to one of British television's best-loved writers and performers.
