Maureen admitted to Radio Times that the show failed to gauge her sense of humour.

“I imagined that they wanted me for my intelligence and my mind. Of course, they just wanted to show you ideas and leave you shocked,” she said.

“Honestly, we had a lot of fun with each other, but none of that was used. And if they don’t want to use what we gave them, kill them.”

Ahead of the upcoming new celebrity series, Dame Joanna, 76, revealed she is “very honored” to be joining her friend.

Speaking of the opportunity, she said: “It was a great honor and crossed something off my long bucket list.”
