This week Kerry is chatting to film, tv and theatre legend, Anita Dobson.

After many years working as an actress, Anita found fame in the 1980's when she took on the role of Angie Watts in Eastenders. After becoming a household name she soon went on to take on roles in Television (Red Dwarf, Nesbitt, Hotel Babylon, The Bill, Holby City), Theatre (Chicago, Hamlet, Chorus Girls, Budgie, Rough Crossing) and even lit up the ballroom on Strictly Come Dancing.

Anita shares tales of her early years and first steps into acting, her experience in both Eastenders and Strictly, plus the advice she would give to her twenty year old self.
