My Daily Mail Hell
In 2003 Bridget began doing open spots on the comedy circuit and working on the diary column of the Daily Mail. Whilst there, Bridget was strangled by Gene Wilder, fed a fish by Peter Stringfellow, mistaken for someone else by Mel Brooks, hated by David Dimbleby, ignored by Cherie Blair and patronised by Jenny Eclair.
My Daily Mail Hell’s affectionate expose of a showbiz gossip column is sure to delight both Daily Mail readers and decent people too.
