"People say Pauline and I have fallen out," she said. "Obviously I couldn't see her during lockdown but I've seen her since. She just doesn't want to act anymore. She's had enough - it's long hours. She's concentrating on her drama academies. She's very hands on, going to classes and all that.


Birds of a Feather was originally broadcast from 1989 to 1998

"I see Lesley [Joseph] all the time because we won Celebrity Coach Trip last year. And during the lockdowns I would leave funny things on her doorstep, like Tena Lady and hair dye!"

Linda also confirmed that when she was ill, both Pauline and Lesley regularly rang her, adding: "They were both a big support and really there for me."
