Speaking on her lockdown experience, Dame Helen said: “It’s been an extraordinary journey for all of us. Unlike anything like any of us have ever experienced.”
The actress explained how she had been enjoying staying put with her husband at their home, finally getting the chance to finish a tube of toothpaste.
On lockdown, she said: “I’m with my husband, I have to say, my life up to that point, I was constantly packing and unpacking and I never got the end of a tube of toothpaste.
“This is how I suddenly realised. My husband and I were in our house in America and I used up a whole tube of toothpaste, probably for the first time in my life.
“It was fabulous just to be at home, talk about what we were going to have for dinner that night,” added Dame Helen.
