Famous fans and co-stars pay tribute to the late, great writer, actor and comic, Victoria Wood

It’s a year on from her tragically early death, but it's still hard to believe that the wonderful Victoria Wood is no longer around.

This fabulous and much-deserved six-part tribute from her closest co-stars and famous fans, including Celia Imrie, Richard E Grant and Michael Ball, is a welcome reminder of Victoria’s unique talent.

Julie Walters kicks off proceedings by looking at the theme of age in her pal's work, from Victoria's role as teenage tearaway Kelly-Marie and the middle-aged angst of Bren and her colleagues in dinnerladies, to the sublime Acorn Antiques, which saw Julie play elderly cleaner Mrs Overall. A glorious and moving celebration.
