Victoria Wood: Best Moments
Beloved comedian Victoria Wood has died aged 62 after a short battle with cancer. The BAFTA-winning actor, director, writer and musician was one of the most powerful forces in British comedy.
Born in 1953 in Prestwich, Wood rose to fame in 1974 after winning the talent show New Faces. Her critically-acclaimed show Victoria Wood as Seen on TV is still much celebrated, along with the sitcom, Dinnerladies, which she wrote and starred in.
