Nicola Sturgeon on Tracey Ullman

An excerpt from Nicola Sturgeon's interview in this week's Metro

Have you seen Tracey Ullman’s impressions of you on her BBC show? 

I’ve not seen all of them but I had to watch some because I’ve heard so much about it. I thought it was really funny.

Should she play you in our Brexit drama? 

I definitely think she should! She’s got the outfit and everything!

Tracey Ullman is back on BBC One with Tracey Breaks The News, a political and topical offering from the award-winning actress, impressionist and comedian. The half-hour special will be filmed close to transmission and broadcast in the aftermath of the general election.

The show is a mix of famous political figures and everyday people reacting to the results of the general election and the anniversary of the Brexit vote. As the election result will have global implications, the show also looks at the reaction of the Russians, Europeans and - Melania Trump.

Tracey Breaks the News is a BBC Studios production, produced by Caroline Norris. The Director is Dom Brigstocke and the Executive Producer is Gareth Edwards. Commissioning Editor is Gregor Sharp.

This show was included as part of Shane Allen’s recent announcement about a range of satirical shows across all four BBC TV channels.
