Imelda Staunton prepares to take 'The Crown' from Olivia Colman

Imelda Staunton tells us how she is helping to keep theatres in business by taking Alan Bennett's Talking Heads monologues from the small screen to the stage.

The series of socially-distanced monologues are currently being put on in London before touring Leeds and Sheffield.

She also tells us how she is preparing to take on the pressures of playing the Queen in The Crown next year.

On appearing in The Crown, Imelda says: "There's pressure from every angle. I'm following two extraordinary actresses, but I'm also following one extraordinary human being, which is the Queen. We know how she looks and how she sounds, and of course I need to be like her as much as I can, but also I have to tell a story."
