‘And you’ve given me teflon confidence, and also the speed we have to work and all the extra stuff that started coming and marching our way. To dismantle, in the name of equality. It’s just all such b******s.  

‘You’ve got some amazing actors, phenomenal directors coming through, and there’s just this, there’s other people. Well, you know.’

Speaking to her colleagues she said: ‘My wish for you guys is that you demand to be the best, because the only people that are stopping you, you know exactly what it is.

‘And you the fans, you demand. Because it’s an amazing show. And it’s got an important remit. But stop trying to cancel everything, and all this segregation, just no.

Divide? She said: ‘The speed we have to work and all the extra stuff that started coming and marching our way. To dismantle, in the name of equality. It’s just all such b******s’

She continued: ‘And I tell you something else about getting older, you want people like me, women like me, who have decided to carve out a world.

‘Don’t be afraid to be the best, to work as a team, don’t be afraid when you spot someone who is trying to just unpick anything.’

As she addressed her exit she said: ‘It should never have happened, it did, and I’m gone.

‘I can’t not be proud. I think it’s important to stand up for the things you believe in, it’s not easy. Come on seek love, seek life and excellence.’
