In 2015 she helped raise over £100k for Stories of Care, a literary project that encouraged care leavers to write about their own experiences in the system.

She was also nominated as Best Newcomer for the Chortle Awards.

While Speaking to The Yorkshire Post, she spoke of her unique background and entry into the comedy world.

She explained: “Most of the people in this industry are not working class, but since I have become successful I have a voice – and I’ll use it.

“I’ve seen the desperation that comes from living with a heroin addict and having to work as an escort to finance my career in the arts – which I talk about in the show.

“We seem to be obsessed with class again – three years ago it seemed like it wasn’t an issue and suddenly it’s become fashionable again… I also confront my own hypocrisy and talk about my family background and why my grandparents voted Tory.”
