She’s got it off pat now but the tough routine and home crowd in Glasgow literally made her sick with nerves for the first time ever.“The rest of them had been doing it for months, they’re happy, got a poker school going on in the next dressing room, but I was throwing up before we went on.It was Glasgow, the best production of Annie I’ve ever seen and I was terrified of letting them down.Smith plays Christine, an overbearing, demanding character who tells it like it is.“She’s one of those women that say, ‘you know me, I don’t like to say anything,’ then gives you her opinion.She has the ability to say things that people have no come back for. Alex Norton’s character is having a wee rest from drinking and she says, ‘oh well, I suppose if it’s making you fat and making you spit when you talk, quite right.’“She’s also never away from the doctors, has a neck collar, a stick, and her bladder’s away again.She’s done stand up, such as Elaine, that crossed over onto TV, and more recently an STV series Burdz Eye View, which followed her stand up show around Scotland’s holiday resorts, Stonehaven to St Andrews, North Berwick to Portpatrick. I was doing Peter Pan in Aberdeen – this is the seventh year – I love panto, but it’s knackering.Theatre roles include The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Shirley Valentine, and playing Susan Boyle in I Dreamed A Dream.

One of them I have to do a...” She swishes past me in a blur of jersey layers as she belts off the banquette and onto the polished floor behind us.“Yes siree, yes siree” she sings, “jump back, forward, back, back, back, one and two... And I’m singing Easy Street at the same time,” she says before gliding back to the table.
She’s looks hellish, makes Mary Doll look a beauty queen with lime green tops with a leopard or something, a grey cardy, velour-y trackie bottoms and lots of dry shampoo – a bit Rose West – apart from when she goes to a funeral when it’s a veil, diamanté earrings and red lipstick.”“She’s been one of the most liberating characters for me to play, comedically,” says Smith, “because she’s not a feed.
Mary Nesbitt was a great character to play, but invariably her comedy came out of the situations that Rab created; it was his story. She’s just brilliant.” “There was one day we had a scene in the back garden and it was Arabella, Doon and Sharon, all of us being funny, with a female director of photography and a female producer. ”Ah, but were you being funny about the men who weren’t there?
