Oooh Matron! Ruth Jones Plays Hattie Jacques In New Drama

BBC Four will shortly be showing a new BBC Drama about Carry OnStar Hattie Jacques entitled Hattie and starring actress Ruth Jones.

The drama is based on a recent biography of the star and will focus on the breakdown of Hattie's marriage to Dad's Army actor John Le Mesurier, following her infidelity with her chauffeur.

From clips already shown on BBC Four this looks to be a promising programme and surely must have been a challenge for Ruth Jones to portray the iconic comedy actress.

Ruth, of course is known to many comedy fans as Nessa in
Gavin and Stacey - a fine comic creation if ever one was occurring (!)

Ruth has also turned out great performances in other TV series including Torchwood, The Great Outdoors, Tess of The D'Urbervilles and A Child's Christmas In Wales.

I'm certainly looking forward to Ruth's portrayal of Hattie - In the meantime here's a cover of Barry Island's local newspaper which I designed and which Ruth kindly signed for me a few years back! It features Nessa, her most famous comic creation!
