She will perform her new show Sixty! (FFS!) on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 7.30pm.

The show’s blurb states: ‘Having hit 60 (but still a year younger than Madonna), Jenny Eclair AKA ‘The Face of Vagisan’ confronts a new decade of decrepitude.

‘Now that it takes 20 minutes of scrolling down to find her DOB when she’s filling in forms online, should she celebrate or crawl into a hole?

‘What will her 60’s hold for this 1960’s babe and is it a legal requirement to buy Nordic walking poles?’

Jenny Eclair is perhaps best known for her roles in Grumpy Old Women between 2004 and 2007 and in Loose Women in 2011 and 2012.

She has also taken part in several reality shows, including I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in 2010 when she came third behind Stacey Solomon.

Alnwick Playhouse, announcing the show in its newsletter, added: ‘We look forward to a diverse programme of fantastic entertainment for our audiences and trust the interruption to our programme shall be over in summer 2021.

‘However no one has a crystal ball, so we will continue to offer the quick and efficient options of refund, exchange or donate for any interruption to the planned programme in 2021, allowing everyone to book with confidence.’

Full price tickets are £22, age 14+.
