It quickly sparked Juliet to take a moment to correct Alison for her mistake.

She replied: “Juliet actually!”

Alison pulled a face and laughed, saying: “Sorry Juliet.”

I was thinking of Julia who’s been behind the scenes. Sorry, Juliet!

Juliet joked: “It’s alright. Julia makes it all anyway!”

Alison said: “That’s what I was thinking of. I was thinking of Julia who’s been behind the scenes. Sorry, Juliet! Awks. Keep going…”
