Ruth Madoc discusses role in Dorothy Squires play

Dorothy Squires' life is now the focus of a new play at the Sherman theatre in Cardiff.

She is played by none other than Ruth Madoc, who visited ITV to discuss the production.

"My role is when we meet Dorothy when she's gone to Trebanog, which is where she ended her days" she says.

"It's her reminiscing about her life - and it was a heck of life!" she says.

"The other side of the stage, you have a lovely young lady emulating her when she was younger, and singing all her songs".

"I remember her very well. She was an icon".
