Bishop, 55, added, “Aisling and Adjani’s relationship is great – they threw in some ad libs that they kept as they are great comic actors and they are both very funny.

Gill, 33, said they all had “so much fun” working together on the once-in-a-lifetime episode. She said, “It was really fun working with Aisling and Adjani. They are very funny people.

“Aisling created these characters from my life and played them for me, just for me. It was like having a one woman show every time we cut the camera.

“There was a time when Jodie, Aisling, and I really convinced ourselves that doing a music video would be a good idea because there was a big silver goal and it reminded us of Girls Alouds Sound of the subway.

“We practiced it, then we had to go to the set, then we practiced it again and in my head I really thought Adjani was actually our tour manager.”
