"Car picking me up didn't show up.

"I came into work and a poor, very senior person called Daniel came in early to make sure my computer worked, because I'm legendary for being useless with computers."

I might be able to go and visit Derek after the show today.

She continued: "And having been away for three months... and just as I arrived it went into a two hour update. So getting in early was utterly wasted."

Her return to the show came after doctors had suggested she get back to work and some normality.
