Following the sad death of iconic comedian Victoria Wood yesterday after a short battle with cancer, broadcasters have announced plans to change their schedules and air some of Wood’s most famous work in a tribute to her life and achievements.
BBC2 has bumped Antiques Road Trip and Natural World: Nature’s Perfect Partners from tonight’s listings in order to show episodes of classic sketch series Victoria Wood as Seen on TV, which also starred Julie Walters and Celia Imrie among others.
Meanwhile, satellite channel Gold will be airing episodes of Wood sitcom dinnerladies across primetime this weekend, alongside festive special Victoria Wood’s Midlife Christmas.
