Quotes

When you’ve been brought up in variety, I think timing is always important in your life. If I’m ever late for anything, whether it’s personal or business, I always apologise. ‘I’m sorry I’m late,’ and all that. And if somebody is late meeting me, I expect them to say ‘I’m sorry I’m late.’ It’s just, shall we say, showbiz etiquette of my day.
