Sarah moved back in with her parents after her first marriage ended. She has previously made mention of how the end of this relationship has helped inform her comedy material.

Sarah said in an interview with The Independent: “I got married at 22, which, at the time, didn’t seem young.

“I don’t regret it because you can only make the decisions that feel right at the time, otherwise you’ll just be cautious about everything and that’s no way to live.”

What did Sarah Millican do before comedy?

Before she turned to stand up as a career, Sarah worked in a Job Centre.

She did this as her job until she was 29.

However, Sarah believes her life experience meant she was perhaps more resilient to handing heckling than younger comics.

Someone can shout something at me but it’s not going to be as bad as some of the things I’ve experienced.

She reflected: “Because I started doing stand-up relatively late, someone can shout something at me but it’s not going to be as bad as some of the things I’ve experienced.

“I’ve lived a bit. When you’re 29 it’s, ‘come on… I’ve had scarier farts than you’.”
