Famous for: Bringing her ditsy take on reality to Edie and Patsy's Ab Fab madness
Jane Horrocks' performance as a timid shy singer in Little Voice, alongside Michael Caine and Ewan McGregor, was one of the delights of Nineties cinema. She also charmed audiences as a ditsy PA in comedy series Absolutely Fabulous. The RADA-trained Lancashire actress lives with her partner, writer Nick Vivian, and children Dylan and Molly in a North London pad she jokingly calls Tesco Towers, as it was mostly bought with the fee she received for appearing in a TV ad campaign for the supermarket giant.
