Spotted – and we use the word advisedly – at the Noel Coward Theatre this week was ex-Coronation Street barmaid Bet Lynch, sorry Miss Julie Goodyear OBE being feted by the management who are currently pondering a fresh cast for Calendar Girls when the EastEnders heavy mob moves out on 31 October.

Since West End rumour mill also suggests Joan Collins may be considering a role in the show, it raises the question … can the production budget really stretch to so much stretch leopardskin ?
