In the memoir, Margolyes names Israeli president Benjamin Netanyahu as the “living person” she “most despises”.

And with a cast list that stretches from Churchill to DiCaprio, Dahl to Dietrich, Princess Margaret to Maggie Smith, I’ve so much more to tell you and so much more to say. Margolyes says that she enjoys appearing on morning shows as “egos are less in evidence”, and name-checked This Morning as one she “particularly enjoyed”. Personally I’m not a fan of politics in books (unless of course it’s meant to be political writing). Transcribing anecdotes, some familiar from her “spiritual home”, The Graham Norton Show, doesn’t convey quite the same mischief, though you read with her voice in mind. John Murray says it is already in the planning stages of a huge marketing and publicity campaign, and a 23-date tour across the UK and Ireland in partnership with FANE has been announced, with tickets on sale from Friday 2nd December.She may not have done it in the same way as Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Vanessa Redgrave and some of the other "grandes dames" of British acting, but she is every bit their equal in talent, intellect and humour.

She says Scorsese and the assembled crew’s reaction was a “stunned” and “dazed silence”, which quickly turned “into roars of laughter” and ultimately, according to Margolyes, “gratitude”. Winner of the BAFTA Best Supporting Actress award for The Age of Innocence, she received an OBE in 2002 for Services to Drama.Elsewhere, an anti-Zionist critique might precede a profile of her favourite dogs, the making of a Christmas wreath or an acrimonious fart duel with Arnold Schwarzenegger. She draws from her own experiences of life and weaves them into stories that easily translate into issues and crises of conscience that we all face day in, day out. Margolyes describes herself as” semi-crippled” in the new memoir, adding: “Usually that means you have to stop. From being escorted off the Today programme (for saying what we were all thinking) to declaring her love to Vanessa Redgrave; from Tales of the Unexpected to Graham Norton’s sofa, she is our most loved and most outspoken national treasure.
