Great Freddie interview on BBC Newcastle Radio available until 2nd October
Freddie was interviewed on Radio Newcastle on 25h September by Ingrid Hagemann, standing in for Simon Logan.
Freddie is on great form and talks to Ingrid about many subjects covered in his book, including his grandad Jack Herbert, the birth of variety, his ambivalence about his "Parrotface" success and much more, including his National Service days in the North East - he was in Fenham Barracks - and the role that Bobby Pattinson's mum played in getting Freddie into comedy. Don't miss the moment he drops the phone ...
NB: For the relief of Louis Barfe and others (see the post here), the version below has been edited, with the music faded out.
