Anita Dobson on playing Queen Elizabeth I

We've been married 15 years, together for 29!

– Anita Dobson

Anita Dobson and Queen are two words that go well together. This year Anita has been married to Queen rockstar Brian May for 15 years... but her next role is a very different Queen!

Anita joins Lorraine to talk about playing Queen Elizabeth 1 in BBC2 docudrama Armada which airs this Sunday.

She will also be talking about starring in London Road, a new film with Olivia Coleman and Tom Hardy which looks at the events of 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women.

From the Queen Vic to the Queen... with the queen of Daytime TV!
