Felicity, who described the play as a ‘comic Titanic that doesn’t sink’, said: ‘I can’t sing but there is always hope. It’ll be fine or I will get fired.’

Talking about the hit 1970s sitcom The Good Life in which she played Barbara Good,  Felicity discussed the battle that she and Penelope Keith had to portray their characters drunk. 

She said: ‘I love acting p****d and we thought it would be very funny if we became as drunk as Jerry and Tom, but the head of the BBC said Barbara and Margot can’t get drunk because they are so loved by the audience. 

‘We fought really hard to do it and eventually we did that scene. It’s interesting to see how far we’ve come – now everyone is p****d.’

Felicity explained: ‘Then there was a time when you’d think, I’m over 60, I can’t possibly wear a short skirt again because of my crinkly knees.

‘Then you come out the other end and say, f*** it, I’ve got good legs, I’m going to put on tights and a short skirt.’

Felicity became a beloved household name starring in The Good Life, despite running for just 30 episodes over four series. 

The mother-of-two converted to Judaism while married to her second husband Michael Rudman, who is Jewish.

The couple divorced in 1990 but have since got back together. Her first marriage to actor Drewe Henley lasted 11 years, and she was only 21 when they married.

She has two grandchildren, but says she has 12 in total as she counts her late sister’s children and their children as her own, as well as Rudman’s from his first marriage. 

The Graham Norton Show will air on BBC One this Friday at 10.45pm and it is also available on BBC iPlayer.
