Lorraine and Lesley then discussed the actor’s iconic show, Birds of a Feather. The show originally aired on BBC One between 1988 and 1998. It returned in 2014 on ITV and ran until Christmas 2020.

“You did a brilliant Christmas special for Birds of a Feather – that’s always something hopefully that could come back,” Lorraine said.

“I would love it to come back,” Lesley Joseph announced. She then went on to explain the one problem that’s standing in the way of her making a comeback to the iconic ITV show.

“The only thing about doing Dorien is you do have to keep your weight very much in control,” Lesley went on to say.

“To fit in all of those costumes,” Lorraine said, and Lesley agreed with her.

“I’ve kept all her [Dorien] clothes or nearly all. They were all wonderful designer clothes – had to buy them – but some of them are so thin I can’t quite get in them again,” she revealed.
