Hello and welcome to
The One Show with Matt Baker.
And Angellica Bell.
And that was of course legendary
comedian Sir Ken Dodd,
who passed away last night
in his Knotty Ash home
at the age of 90.
At the end of tonight's show,
we'll be saying tatty-bye to the man
who tickled us for years,
with our own little
tribute to Sir Ken.
If you met him, send us your photos
and we'll show some later.
Also tonight, we'll be seeing how

around a long time and is the wisest
woman in the universe and she
travels different dimensions. She is
35 feet tall, 18 feet tall, she is
in another dimension and forgot to

to guide Meg. She is the young girl
played so beautifully by Storm Reid.

and is now 14.

She is the youngest and a little
cheeky. She is always making

like pinches the children and calls

Mindy, what are the messages for you
The message I respond
to most, is one of my quotations.
That is, the wound is where the
light enters. I never thought about
that but especially now I have a
baby, you spend so much time
protecting your loved ones but to
know the wound is where the light
enters, that was profound to me. You
think of them as things that make
you weaker and I love that.
that quote. And at the beginning
when Mrs Which appears and she is
teaching Meg about tessering and she
says you have to find your own
frequency and have faith in who you
are, and those words of wisdom for
the world because everybody is
worried about everyone else's
frequency, especially today, social
media, but you find your own flow
and have faith in that. That is
where you are supposed to be and the
frequency takes you to the highest
point of your life.
It is evident
all three of you have found the
avenue to develop and express
yourself. You have spoken openly
about diversity on and off screen.
This is a huge project, especially
for the director, to direct this
massive Disney film.
You know Ava
quite well? I think we all do now.
It was a reason you wanted to be
part of the film?
Absolutely, she is
one of the most important
film-makers of our time. When people
say no, she says, why not, I'm
sorry, try harder. I am not
compromising. It will be this way.
That is how you have to be as a
director, to change the stories we
