It is pretty incredible to finish it - the first draft. I got somebody to teach me - there’s a programme called final draft. I had someone come round my house and teach me how to use it.”

She added: “I’ve got a few friends, who are screenwriters, and they said to write the premise of it first - like the whole story of it. Then every story has three acts whether it’s a screenplay or not. Well, most of them do. The first act is the problem and by the end of the first act you know what the problem is and how you are going to go about it.

“The second act is like the highlight and by the end of the second act it has to go wrong. And the third act is the resolution. Normally, in the first act you’ve got 10 points to make, in the second you’ve got about 15 or 20 and I think it’s about 15 in the third act. It’s really exciting.”
