STEVEN PERKINS

Caroline Quentin became a household name playing outspoken Dorothy in hit 1990s sitcom Men Behaving Badly. But recent years have seen the Surrey-born star busy with dramatic roles, on-screen and stage, as well as forging a successful presenting career.

So it’s even more delightful to see Caroline back in the world of comedy this week as she joins the cast of BBC1’s The Other One.

Aunt Dawn is a great character – what can you tell us about her?

She’s really sweet, very gung-ho and quite jolly-hockey-sticks. She never complains and always sees the best in everything – even when she gets food poisoning!

Dawn’s look tells viewers a lot about her straight away. Did you have much of a say in that?
