Watch: We go behind the scenes of hit play Abigail's Party

The groundbreaking play 'Abigail's Party' has become a comedy classic and we're proud to say it's deeply rooted in the north west.

Superstar writer Mike Leigh, who grew up in Salford wrote the play over forty years ago and cast his wife at the time in the lead role, Liverpool's very own Alison Steadman.

Now the brilliant and bubbly Blackpool lass- Jodie Prenger is stepping into her shoes as the play is currently on tour and heads to Manchester next week.

Our entertainment correspondent Caroline Whitmore was invited along to the party too.
