Apparently, she wanted to run and bark a little longer before breakfast. “Heathcliff, sit,” I said, holding his food bowl above his head. Though Freya obeyed, he stood and stared at me.

BRITAIN’s Got Talent’s Barbara Nice angered Lorraine viewers today when she downplayed her past fame on Phoenix Nights. Barbara is a character created by Janice Connolly, and the actress is best known for her role as Holy Mary in Peter Kay’s classic show. Janice Connolly played Holy Mary in Phoenix Nights but has taken on a new character for Britain’s Got Talent But Barbara – a caricature of a middle aged housewife and mother of five from Kings Heath, Birmingham – is also already very well known on the comedy circuit. Today, Janice appeared as her character again and spoke to Lorraine’s stand-in Christine Lampard about auditioning on Britain’s Got Talent. The actress didn’t break character and dodged Christine’s probing questions about her success as a comic. Speaking about her ‘fake’ husband Ken, she said: “He knows about the little jigs I do, say in Buxton, and I’ve done Derby a couple of times as well. “I’ve not told him about this audition, there’s no point telling him, it’s on a strictly need to know basis.” Barbara Nice was a huge hit on BGT last night – but she’s already pretty famous There was an awkward pause as Christine pointed out that the show is watched by millions – with viewers moaned on Twitter that she’s “already a TV professional”. One person said: “Barbara Nice aka Janice Connelly BEM. professional actress. Phoenix Nights, Coronation Street. #BGT.” Another said: “Why is Barbara nice getting loads of publicity? She’s already a TV professional having appeared on Phoenix Nights. She even has a tour. “She’s not a raw talent which is what BGT is supposed to be all about.” Holy Mary time #Lorraine — Judge Don Bonkers OBE (@Judge_Don_B) April 22, 2019 Why is Barbara Nice getting loads of publicity?
