Biography

Celia Imrie is one of the country’s most familiar and best-loved actresses. Her career has incorporated a string of hugely popular and successful TV, stage and cinema appearances from her work with Victoria Wood to Calendar Girls to Dr Who.

Going straight from school into acting, Celia started out with a range of TV appearances including Upstairs, Downstairs and To the Manor Born. An accomplished comic actor, Celia perhaps became best known starring alongside Victoria Wood and Julie Walters, in particular her turn as Miss Babs in Acorn Antiques, a role she took on many times on screen, and also on stage in the musical version.

Celia went on to appear in acclaimed TV series both comic and dramatic including Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, The New Statesman, Absolutely Fabulous, Dr Who, and Dinnerladies. On the big screen her credits stretch from Star Wars to Bridget Jones's Diary, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel to Nanny McPhee.

On stage, Celia has covered everything from Shakespeare to Sheridan, Pinter to panto. After her award-winning performance in the Acorn Antiques stage musical, Celia made her debut cabaret performance in Laughing Matters. The West End sell-out show, a mixture of sketch, song and anecdote, saw Celia perform a range of favourite numbers and specially written pieces. It is this cabaret performance that she reprises for live events.
