Christopher Biggins has hailed The Queen as "the most extraordinary women" following the revelry on The Mall this weekend to mark her official 90th birthday celebrations. 

"I've met her on many different occasions and she is phenomenal. How she can talk to the different people she has to talk to, she deserves a medal just for that," Biggins told Paul Ross.  

"I went straight to the BBC where we were talking about the Queen, and the rain was sort of hovering," he said about Saturday.

"When the Queen made her appearance down The Mall, the sun just streamed down, it was so exciting.

"[The crowds] were absolutely soaked yet they were still loving every single moment of it, that is what’s so great about the British."

The Royal Family walked down The Mall, stopping to talk to the cheering crowds, and posed for photos. The Queen later gave a speech and thanked the public for their good wishes.
