Our Interviewer continues to get all the gossip from Dick Whittington's Dame Sarah.
INTERVIEWER: I’m taking another opportunity to speak to Sarah – who works for Alderman Fitzwarren in his shop in Cheapside, London.
SARAH: Who are you calling cheap?
INTERVIEWER: Nobody! I said “Cheapside” … isn’t that the street where you run your shop?
SARAH: Retail emporium.
INTERVIEWER: Sorry, retail emporium.
SARAH: Yes. I’ll have you know, Cheapside is London’s most fashionable shopping street.
INTERVIEWER: Isn’t that supposed to be Oxford Street?
SARAH: Never heard of it.
INTERVIEWER: So, tell me what it’s like, living in the glamorous city of London?
SARAH: Well, we live above the shop in one of those old, half-timbered houses. In fact it’s so old, the only thing that keeps it together is the woodworm, holding hands.
INTERVIEWER: And who lives there with you?
SARAH: My boss, Alderman Fitzwarren, and his daughter, Alice. She’s a lovely girl - I’ve known her since she was a baby. Although it’s a bit different now she’s started managing the shop.
INTERVIEWER: Why is that?
SARAH: Well, she keeps complaining the cash till’s short, but I tell her, if we had a longer one, it wouldn’t fit on the counter. And she’s offered to buy me a pocket calculator, but I honestly don’t think anyone cares how many pockets I’ve got.
Join us for the last instalment from Dame Sarah as she talks about her search for a new man.
