DAMIAN LEWIS: She's a fabulous human being, yeah. And people from all walks of life have been in touch to say what an impact she had on their lives. And that day we had the other day, a few weeks ago, was a special day. I'm very glad you could have been part of it. And she was celebrated by her tribe, her profession, you know, the acting profession. Actors, directors, producers, writers all showed up.

And she's much, much missed. When she came to Soccer Aid the very first time, I got into my hotel room up in Manchester at the Lowry, and it was covered in Union Jack bunting and England flags everywhere, which she'd gone out and bought and decorated the room with.

- How amazing.

DAMIAN LEWIS: She's with us. She's with us again this year.
