Former Eastenders actress Michelle Collins has teamed up with the Equity Benevolent Fund to raise money for workers in the entertainment industry who are not supported by government schemes.

The Hackney native has managed to recruit the likes of Sir Ian McKellen, Miriam Margolyes and Sir Derek Jacobi to record a series of monologues to encourage the public to donate to the fund. She told ITV London about the misconceptions of what the majority of people in the arts earn.

Here's a look at just a few of the monologues featured in the campaign for the Equity Benevolent Fund called #FortheLoveofArts. Michelle is hoping to raise £100,000.
