‘I don’t understand’ said Cilla Black, 76, waiting for a train on Lime Street Station. ‘Freddie’s dad Jerry built my grandma’s patio in 1963. Does that mean it will be removed?’
King Boris I, who famously moved the royal family from Buckingham Palace to Buckingham Road Liverpool 13 (turn left after KFC) also criticised the film. ‘As an honorary scouser myself, I could not live in a world in which there was no Freddie and no Dreamers. Both my wives agree with this, as do their corgis’
Dreamless opens in cinemas round the country this week. It’s created by the producers who made Four Weddings and a Cancelled Barmitzvah and Gove, Actually.
