She has also starred in many films such as St. Trinians, Nanny McPhee, Bridget Jones and Calendar Girls. In her latest venture she takes to the stage as Mrs Malaprop in the eighteenth comedy 'The Rivals'. Famous for her misuse of the English language, Mrs Malaprop describes a young gentleman as ‘the very pineapple of politeness!'
