"Anyone who says there aren't roles for women of a certain age are wrong, as long as they write them themselves" TV's Sue Perkins at the Bafta Awards "There was a school debating society which I spoke at on many, many issues, including a debate to get rid of fox hunting in the middle of a fox hunting area. I didn't get a lot of support for my proposal" Jeremy Corbyn on the Shropshire grammar school he attended "Two of the best roles I have ever had have happened in my late 40s - so I can't complain at a time when most actresses are disappearing and becoming invisible, I am becoming visible" Actress Sarah Lancashire, below, saying it is too early to celebrate gender equality in the TV industry "It was one thing for me, a former politician, to become for a short period of time a TV star, it was quite another thing for the American people to elect a reality TV star as president of the US" Ex-Labour MP and Strictly star Ed Balls "Swan geese are able to fly far and safely through winds and storms because they move in flocks and help each other as a team.
