TV and stage actress Claire Sweeney stopped by the talkRADIO studios on Friday for a chat with Full Set Breakfast host Paul Ross.

The star of Brookside, Loose Women and 60 Minute Makeover is set to appear as Baroness Bomburst in the UK tour of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, beginning in Cardiff from August 3.

She is replacing ex-EastEnder Michelle Collins in the role, who has had to pull out because of a knee injury.

The production will then move on to Canterbury, Birmingham, Northampton, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Woking and Salford, before finishing in Bristol in February 2017. In Salford, Claire will share the stage with comedians Phill Jupitus and Jason Manford. 

Claire tells Paul all about dressing up in sexy outfits, her love of West End musicals and starring alongside everyone's favourite flying car. 

Listen to the interview above - and then watch Paul put her knowledge to the test with a very special quiz below
