Who is miranda hart dating
Her father, Captain David Hart Dyke, was the commanding officer of HMS Coventry when it was sunk by the Argentinians during the Falk-lands War.
(Miranda dropped the Dyke, kept the Hart but now seems to have dispensed with a surname altogether.) He was badly burnt when escaping the ship, but Miranda has said that the effect on her ten-year-old self was minimal.
” It’s fair to say, I think, that Miranda is comedy Marmite. “I never wanted it to be about a single woman looking for love, but I suppose I did want to tap into as many universal themes as possible and love is the sort of key universal theme that runs through life.” So will she and Gary finally get together in the next series? We all got on so well, and it was such a hoot.” For Miranda to have one tattoo (a bird and a heart on her ankle) is surprising enough but to discover she has two is almost shocking. She has had some photographers camped outside her house “and I’m just thinking, ‘Why me?
There are those of us who relish the respite from spiteful or blokey, endlessly knocking humour, and find Miranda’s funny, old-fashioned world rather a relief, with her good-hearted galumphing through life – the maddening but recognisable mother, the ghastly old schoolfriends (Tilly and Fanny), the hunky love interest (Gary, the chef ), the joke-shop gags (love the Heather Small, face on a stick, as selfhelp guru shtick). I mean, there’s some comedy on at the moment which makes me furious – I don’t understand why people like them because I hate them so much. "As a comedian, the audience think you’re saying, ‘Look at me! ’ You’re setting yourself up for people to say ‘Why on earth does she think that? “I couldn’t possibly reveal…” – a sideways, owlish look. She confesses that she has another one on her arm, a pair of Beckham-ish Chinese letters: “It’s pretty horrible and no, I wasn’t drunk – I was stonecold sober. ’” Her friends worry that she’s now so famous that it’s going to be difficult for her to meet anyone because “men are going to feel nervous approaching me but I’m surprised that anyone’s interested in my love life. ” Miranda will air on both Boxing Day and New Year's Day at pm on BBC1.
Opting for the understatement, I ask her if she’s had any more “blips” since then. Sorry Richard E.” Call the Midwife, based on Jennifer Worth’s memoirs of midwifery in the East End just after the Second World War, returns next year and in the meantime there is a special episode on Christmas Day.
“No, and the ‘blip’ became an over-exaggerated blip. Miranda plays the part of Chummy (short for Camilla Fortescue- Cholmeley-Browne) as a version of “Miranda”, but she’s also very affecting in it.
Or maybe that’s the effect of hearing someone, under 70, who doesn’t live in a stately home in the sticks, use expressions like “What a hoot”.“I’m excited about getting older in that each year brings more confidence and I don’t care and I can be me, which is just brilliant.And, also, yes, I do want to go to bed at nine o’clock, thanks.” You expect actors and comedians in semi-autobiographical shows such as Miranda’s to present an exaggerated version of themselves; a persona rather than a person.It’s simply, as I have said before, that after leaving university, I didn’t know what to do with my life, so I went back to Mummy and Daddy for six months.” You have also said before that you are wired to be on the depressive side, that it runs in the family? Writing, for her, is a necessary torture but what she really enjoys is the camaraderie and warmth of working with a group of actors.“Well, there is a slight default setting of ‘Oh, it’s going to be a disaster’, which I have to fight against but I have retrained myself to say, ‘No, it’s going to be fine.’” In fact, she’s rather more level-headed than some of us, that’s for sure. “I got into this business to be around people and to be in an ensemble setting where you meet such fascinating, open people – where you become instant friends and you share things – is just brilliant.
When we are talking about her fantasy cottage in the middle of nowhere, I ask her whether she wouldn’t be a bit alarmed at night in the wilds on her own. “The idea that someone would come to kill me with an axe never crosses my mind.” The phobia she does have is quite niche – fear of choking. There’s none of that British reserve and small talk, which is what I wanted to get away from.
