The actress played Becky in the BBC show, which followed her and Steve (Russell Tovey), a lazy 20-something couple living in Walthamstow.

When we caught up with her about Bridget Jones’s Baby – in which she plays Bridget’s new friend, the brilliant Miranda – she said that “If Becky and Steve had a baby… they’d probably get a bigger bed, put the baby in and just have more toast and tea and watch more television.” 

She added: “I think the show worked because we really did love each other.”

If the sitcom Him & Her were to make a comeback, Sarah Solemani has an excellent vision of what it would be like.

The actress played Becky in the BBC3 show, which followed her and Steve (Russell Tovey), a lazy 20-something couple living in Walthamstow, and ended in December 2013 with Becky finding out that she was pregnant.

When we caught up with Solemani about Bridget Jones’s Baby – in which she plays Bridget’s new friend, the brilliant Miranda – she said of Becky and Steve’s new addition: “You’d hope they look after it but they’re so unhygienic and live in such squalor, who knows, but I think they’d love it. They’d probably get a bigger bed, put the baby in and just have more toast and tea and watch more television.” 

She added: “I think the show worked because we really did love each other.”

The pair are in fact reuniting for a new UKTV comedy show We Have Been Watching, which is set for release in 2017.
