I love Gimme Gimme Gimme. Linda La Hughes is a rampant, gobby slag; loutish and completely convinced of her own beauty. In other words, she’s a girl after my own heart. Here’s ten of my favourite Lindy bits.
1. Linda on pets:
“Tom, I ain’t a pussy person. When people look at me, they don’t think ‘cat’, they think ‘dog’.”
2. This lime green PVC catsuit is to die for:
3. She’s very honest:
“Oh my God, who’s that gorgeous creature? Oh my God it’s me!”
4. Her flirting technique is masterful:
“I’ll just straighten this rug out. I’m quite anal like that.”
5. This exchange.
Tom: “I’m in distress.”
Linda: “I’m in THIS dress.”
6. When asked what she does:
“I chew corn for gummy parrots.”
7. She knew:
“I haven’t been this excited since Jimmy Savile came to our opening day at school and sat on my face.”
8. Her honesty about her sex life:
“I’ve had more pricks than Kerplunk.”
9. Her love of theatre:
Linda: “Should have taken in a show. I love a good play.”
Tom: “You? The last play you went to see was The Chippendales; which, incidentally, is not a play.”
Linda: “It was in a theatre. It had an interval. I had ice cream.”
Tom: “The theatre should be exciting!”
Linda: “I was stuck to my seat.”
10. She’s a responsible, caring adult.
In summary: Linda is my Queen. Filthy bitch.
