Diane Morgan’s spoof history show Cunk on Britain has been nominated for an international TV award.
There’s only one catch.
The actress and comedian, who rose to prominence as doltish interviewer Philomena Cunk in Charlie Brooker’s Wipe, has revealed that she’s currently unable to attend the Rose d’Or awards ceremony in Berlin as her passport has been stolen.
Morgan’s BBC2 acclaimed parody series Cunk on Britain features the character’s trademark straight delivery and hilarious turns-of-phrases, including: “As well as a uterus, Mrs Thatcher had a vision,” and, “It was a particularly difficult time for the gluten intolerant, but thankfully, no one was yet middle class, so they just put up with it”.
