Miriam Margoyles, 80, joined Steph McGovern via video link on Steph’s Packed Lunch today to discuss her new show Lost in Scotland. During the chat, the 39-year-old presenter asked the actress which one of her many roles she favoured.

The television star revealed she preferred to be on stage and claimed she was lucky to have had so many roles as she’s “not pretty”.

She spilled: “I’ve had a very lucky career, I’ve been very lucky because I’m not pretty, I’m short and fat.

“I’ve got no neck, that’s a real disadvantage but I’ve managed to make a living and that’s great credit to me.

“Of course, my strength is in my voices. I am a very good radio actress.”

Steph went on to query Miriam about the “derogatory” comments she had made about herself, which prompted her to interrupt.

“I’m not saying derogatory comments about myself,” she clarified.

“I’m a wonderful person and I’m a very good actress but I’m not beautiful, that’s true, you have to accept these things darling.”

The actress went on to tell Steph that she also wasn’t beautiful but had “something that makes people want to watch” her.

“I’ve got the same, we’re lucky,” she added, implying that it was a good thing.

The presenter took the comment well and replied: “I think you’re onto something with this though because I think being beautiful is a hindrance, so I’m glad I’m not the beautiful one because there’s then so many expectations of you.”

After their exchange, some viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
