They were talking with showbiz reporter Ashley Roberts, 39, about the new series of 's The Crown. 

Getting into character, Amanda said: 'I really like her [Gillian Anderson] as Margaret Thatcher.'

Ashley then responds: 'Oh my god, that's so good!'

The former Wild At Heart actress explained: 'I used to do that when I was eight - only with Gladys Pugh from Hi-De-Hi.' 

Amanda explained that every word Thatcher said was 'measured' and added it was with a 'slight head tilt'.
