The comedy actress, who played Catriona in the long-running BBC sitcom, showed guests how to tell the difference between a Chardonnay and a Sauvignon Blanc on Tuesday at the fundraiser for the Lauderdale Transformed scheme.

Katherine Ives, director of Lauderdale House, said: “It was a very sociable evening. We have introduced a whole new group of people to the house and made many new friends as well.”
