Maxine Peake discusses working with comedian Victoria Wood

Maxine Peake says she was "petrified" of her friend and "inspiration" Victoria Wood.

Wood, who gave Peake her first break in the hit TV series Dinnerladies, was a role model to the comedian from a young age.

"I was petrified of her, not because she was scary but I spent two years being overwhelmed... I regret I didn't make more of an effort," she said.
