Ruby Wax, spiced cauliflower & pomegranate salad and a mimosa mocktail
Nick and Angela are joined by broadcasting icon Ruby Wax.
Ruby Wax is an actress, comedian, writer, television personality and mental health campaigner. Her life in show business began at the Royal Shakespeare Company and from there the lures of TV beckoned. Ruby presented shows like The Full Wax and Ruby Wax Meets in the nineties and noughties, interviewing Donald Trump, OJ Simpson, Goldie Hawn and Pamela Anderson in her inimitable style. A little known Ruby fact is that she was also script editor on all episodes of Absolutely Fabulous.
In 2015, Ruby Wax was awarded an OBE for Services to Mental Health and her new book, the Sunday Times best seller I’m Not As Well As I Thought I Was, is out now.
Angela prepares a delicious spiced cauliflower & pomegranate salad with roast potatoes and chickpeas and Nick mixes a fruity mimosa mocktail for his hero. Ruby Wax talks candidly and comedically about her TV career, her thoughts on Louis Theroux and how her experiences at a silent retreat formed the basis for her new book.
