I’ve been thinking a lot in the last week, well I’ve had the time, and I’ve come to a really difficult decision for me, not to continue with my Sunday Morning Radio show on Nottingham Hospitals Radio for the time being, well after my show tomorrow.

For those who know me, they will know how much I love what I do on Sundays and this was my only release after the decision to stop all theatres and cinemas, and will also know what a wrench this will be. I think I know how all of my actor friends feel because I, like you all, have been doing this for a long time and to suddenly stop doing what you love, albeit just until it’s safe to continue some time in the future, will leave a massive hole in my life.

I have to think of the risks to my family and myself and, as I have to catch four buses to get to and from the hospital studios, I feel that my reducing this risk is the best thing to do.

Times are scary and I pray that we will all get through this in one piece and when it’s all over, I can’t wait to get back into the radio studios and the theatres to see you all again.

Thank God for the internet where I can keep in touch with you all. No need for social distancing, just physical distancing. Hasta La Vista, I WILL be back! See you all on the other side. xxxxx
