In this month's Pride issue, Loose Women host and all-around lovely, Denise, told DIVA Magazine's Roxy Bourdillon how she feels about playing gay in the new DFG series:
"I loved it. Loved it! Listen, I'm such a friend of the gays, I might as well be a lesbian. A dykon, they call me.
"When they said, 'Would you play this LLL - later life lesbian - who realises she fancies Theresa May?' I was completely sold." Legend.
Fancy coming along to the premiere and hanging out with #DeniseTheDykon and the rest of the fabulous cast and crew?

Coming to Wilton’s Music Hall in July, it depicts the 1968 meeting between Nico and Valerie Solanas, when the latter attempted to assassinate Andy Warhol.
